Don Gibson and Dottie West Sweet Memories lyrics
My world is like a river
Oh, as dark as it is deep
And night after night the past creeps in
And gathers all my sleep.
My day is just an endless stream
Of emptiness to me
Filled only by the fleeting moments
Of your memories, sweet memories, sweet memories, mhm.
You slipped into the silence
Of my dreams last night
Wondering from room to room
Turning on the lights.
Your laughter spills like a river
With water out to sea
I'm swept away from sadness
Clinging to your memories, sweet memories, sweet memories, mhm..
