A companion/remedy for 'Name of a Man'.


 


 


A LYRIC FOR EVERY YEAR


 

Do you remember? Do you remember…

Me?


I was the one who set you free!

I was the one who let you see!

I was your Father, your Mother... and yet,

I was the child you should never forget.

Do you remember … do you remember...

Me?

 

Inside the woman, inside the man...

There's me! 

Behind the wrinkles,

Behind the grey...

There's me!

I was Jim Hawkins, Superman too!

I journeyed with you to far Xanadu!

I'll hold your hand to the end of all time:

I'll give you reason, I'll give you rhyme,

If you remember … if you remember...

Me!

 

When you remember, when you remember...

Me!

Beyond the years

And all the fears...

There's me!

I cannot repay all debts you owe,

For I had the kiss, but I felt the blow,

Make ev'ry year an all children's time.

Give them the reason, give them the rhyme!

Then you'll remember …then you'll remember...

Me!

 

If it was bad for you,

Or it was sad for you,

They'll make it glad for you!

And you'll remember,

Yes, you'll remember...

Me!
