Memories like the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories of the way we were
Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another for the way we were

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me would we, oh could we?

Memories may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember we simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter, oh we will remember
Whenever we remember the way we were, the way we were

See I would not replace or erase all our memories
Lessons given to us we learned unselfishly
So take this moment, take an extra breath
With respect for our time, can't rewind what's just meant to be

But now we gotta move on, gotta stay strong
Celebrating us all night long
No regrets, don't forget that our time together was truly beautiful
Theses memories will live forever

Memories may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember we simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter that we will remember
Whenever we remember the way we were

Songwriters
Hamlisch, Marvin
