(First a #32 hit for Dottie West and Don Gibson in 1969; also a #4 hit ten years
later for Willie Nelson.)

My world is like a river, as dark as it is deep
Night after night, the past creeps in and gathers all my sleep
My days are just an endless stream of emptiness for me
Filled only with the fleeting moments of your memory

Sweet memories
Sweet memories
I'm clinging to your memories

You slipped into the silence of my dreams last night
Wandering from room to room, turning on each light
Your laughter spills like water from the river to the sea
And I'm swept away from sadness, clinging to your memory

Sweet memories
Sweet memories
I'm clinging to your memories
(Repeat and fade)
