All I Can Be (Is A Sweet Memory) Lyrics

by Collin Raye

All I can be is a sweet memory
That drifts through your mind from time to time
I can never be more than a knock on your door
Just a shadow that's gone with the sunshine

For you know I'm not free and I never can be
And your bound to get restless in time
All I can be is a sweet memory
That drifts through your mind

Tonight I'll share the silence while lying here with you
Sands of time have trickled down just a precious few
You're young and so beautiful and I'm so glad that I'm here
But the ending is painfully clear

All I can be is a sweet memory
Of someone you had to leave behind
Who loves you and needs you
But never could give you a ring for your finger so fine

So tonight we'll just borrow each other
Tomorrow we'll find we've run out of time
All I can be is a sweet memory
That drifts through your mind

For you know I'm not free and I never can be
And your bound to get restless in time
All I can be is a sweet memory
That drifts through your mind

All I can be is a sweet memory
That drifts through your mind
