Memento Lyrics

I'm threading through the evening
it's later than I thought
a friend of mine is waiting
for cigarettes I brought

she smiles she seems so tired
so nothing is required

I reach into my pocket
some things she left behind
nothing really happens
in ways I can't define

loose talk of hearts and heads
of sleep in other beds
it's better left unsaid

she says that she is cold
I wish that I could hold

but no,
how can you hold a soul?
you just can't hold a soul
that shines like gold
she shines like gold

I will, I won't, I would
I've said more than I should

she leaves she goes uptown
she may not come back down
she may not come back down
she may not turn around
she may not make a sound
she may not come back down
11.Are you aware? when you just stare,
for hours, into the sky
what do you see? can you show it to me
the beauty...

I can see you shine inside
I want to see the world - see it in a new light
I can feel your spirit rise
I want to see the world through your eyes

I watch you breathe, sitting under the tree
the peace that you find
you take my hand, waves crash on the sand
what's done - left behind

I can see you shine inside
I want to see the world - see it in a new light
I can feel your spirit rise
how it shines

scene changes, rearranges
oh nature's song
the river is fire the river is water
the river is sweet sweet wine

is it the time? is there a sign?
how do I find your state of mind

I can see you shine inside
I want to see the world - see it in a new light
I can feel your spirit rise
how it shines

scene changes, rearranges
oh nature's song
I'm seeing, I'm believing
I'm feeling strong
the river is fire, the river is water
the river is sweet, sweet wine
the river is moving, moving through me
the river it shines inside
