The way we were

(Marvin Hamlisch / Marilyn and Alan Bergman)

Mem'ries,

Light the corners of my mind

Misty water-colored memories

Of the way we were

Can it be that it was all so simple then?

Or has time re-written every line?

If we had the chance to do it all again

Tell me, would we? Could we?

Mem'ries,

May be beautiful and yet

What's too painful to remember

We simply choose to forget

So it's the laughter

We will remember

Whenever we remember...

The way we were...

The way we were...
