about

I wanted to write and release something as part of NZ Music Month 2016. This came out of a dream I had one night. I woke up and somewhat half asleep wrote the first part of the lyrics. Looked at it the next day, added the melody and some are lyrics. A couple of days later it was finished. It's one of the only songs that I started and kept on the piano.

lyrics

I don't wanna move
I don't want my mind to forget this moment
You're here with me tonight
At least until I open my eyes

Just like long ago
When your face was so familiar
Now do you even know
Where I am. Do you remember

When I held you close
The moment when we both let go
When we could look into each other's eyes and forget the world

My hands were drawing on your skin
Pictures of what could have been
A future that I'll only see at night when I'm asleep.

Do you remember me?

When you flew away
I left things in a sentimental haze
I said I was afraid
Of being on my own for all those days

I didn't see
That you were so unlike the others
Oh foolish me
Now I want to rediscover

If I can

Hold you close
That moment when we both let go
I wanna look into your eyes and forget the world

My hands were drawing on your skin
Pictures of what could have been
A future that I only see at night when I'm asleep.

Do you remember me?

I wish that I could tell you all the things I miss
Get lost in the streets of Churton Park
Talk with you and laugh with you about the silly things I'd do
I wish that I could go back to the start

And I would hold you close
Never ever let you go
I would look into your eyes and forget the world

My hands would draw upon your skin
Pictures of what should have been
A future now I'll only see at night when I'm asleep.

Do you remember me?
