Forever A Memory


Lyrics

"Forever A Memory"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

I played a few guitars and broke my share of strings

I wrote a lot of songs, some I even tried to sing

For those who never told me how bad I really was

I’ll do what I can to bring you some love


When I die, I hope my life will go on

And people I knew might remember a song

Maybe for a moment they’ll forget that I’m gone

Forever a memory, tagging along


I skied in the mountains on some sunny powder days

Got fresh tracks and face shots and soaked in the rays

For all you poor ski bums without any dough

I’ll do what I can to bring you some snow


When I die, I hope my life will go on

And people I knew might remember a song

Maybe for a moment they’ll forget that I’m gone

Forever a memory, tagging along


Don’t feel sad for me, don’t feel bad I’m not around

I’ll be here to help you whenever you’re feelin’ down

When you sleep in your dreams, you’ll see me again

And you’ll know I’m the happiest that I’ve ever been

I’m never far away, always there just for you

Your sidekick from heaven to help you get through


When I die, I hope my life will go on

And people I knew might remember a song

Maybe for a moment they’ll forget that I’m gone

Forever a memory, tagging along


When I die, I hope my life will go on

And people I knew might remember a song

Maybe for a moment they’ll forget that I’m gone

Forever a memory, tagging along

Brief Description

This is a simple song about contemplation of leaving a legacy.  As a living will of sorts, it's at the same time an indirect expression of my desire for my songs to reach a wider audience.  An important part of my legacy might be the songs I've written.  I'm proud of them, and this is one of my best.  It just worked.  I don't even really know how to play harmonica, but it works on this one.  The music is catchy and the message is emotion-evoking.  It explores the concept of possibly having some sort of influence over the living after you die and hooking up those you sympathize with.
