I will remember you, will you remember me? Don’t let your life pass you by, Weep not for the memories Remember the good times that we had? I let them slip away from us when things got bad. How clearly I first saw you smilin’ in the sun Want to feel your warmth upon me I want to be the one [Chorus]I will remember you, will you remember me? Don’t let your life pass you by Weep not for the memories I’m so tired but I can’t sleep Standin’ on the edge of something much to deep It’s funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word We are screaming inside, but we can’t be heard [Chorus]I’m so afraid to love you But more afraid to lose Clinging to a past that doesn’t let me choose Once there was a darkness Deep and endless night You gave me everything you had, oh you gave me life 

I will remember you, will you remember me? 
Don’t let your life pass you by, 
Weep not for the memories 
Remember the good times that we had? 
I let them slip away from us when things got bad. 
How clearly I first saw you smilin’ in the sun 
Want to feel your warmth upon me 
I want to be the one 

[Chorus]
I will remember you, will you remember me? 
Don’t let your life pass you by 
Weep not for the memories 

I’m so tired but I can’t sleep 
Standin’ on the edge of something much to deep 
It’s funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word 
We are screaming inside, but we can’t be heard 

[Chorus]

I’m so afraid to love you 
But more afraid to lose 
Clinging to a past that doesn’t let me choose 
Once there was a darkness 
Deep and endless night 
You gave me everything you had, oh you gave me life 

That Lush song just sent me into a weird tear of nostalgia, searching through boxes for the mixtapes a boy made for me during our brief long-distance romance in the early oughties. I lived in Portland and he was the auxiliary member of a popular Seattle band (notice the pattern) and he had the best taste in French new wave movies and shoegaze music. WE SENT EACH OTHER HAND-WRITTEN LETTERS. The above song was definitely on one of said tapes. I was certain we were getting married. We didn’t! Now he is in a noise band!
