Cats - Memory Song

Greatest Song from the Broadway Musical
Cats the Musical - Memory Lyrics

"Memory" is a song from the Broadway musical Cats (1982). The music was written by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Midnight, not a sound from the pavement.
Has the moon lost her memory? She is smiling alone.
In the lamp light the whithered leaves collect at my feet,
and the wind, begins to moan.

Memory, all alone in the moonlight.
I can dream of the old days, life was beautiful then.
I remember, the time I knew what happiness was.
Let the memory live again.

Every street lamp seems to beat, a fatalistic warning.
Someone mutters and a street lamp smutters, and soon it will be morning.

Daylight, I mustn't wait for the sun rise,
I must think of a new night, and I mu-st give in.
When the dawn comes, tonight will be a memory too,
And a new day will begin.

Burnt out ends of smoky days, the stale cold smell of morning.
A street lamp borns, another night is over, another day is dawning.

Touch me, its so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory, of my days in the sun.
If you touch me, you'll understand what happiness is.
Look, a new day has begun.
