Lyrics

Sweet Reminders

The girl of my dreams walks right in through the door
And my mind goes to work right away
A glass of wine
And my best line
But there's no sign
That maybe she could feel the same
There's only me to blame

The sound of her voice or a glimpse of her smile
Seems to start my head spinning around
But to some degree
It's plain to see
She thinks of me
As only just a friend of hers
The kind that she prefers

...and...

She leaves behind sweet reminders
The air smells like her perfume
She leaves behind sweet reminders
But sometimes I wonder for whom
Sometimes I wonder for whom

Whenever I'm with her I savor each moment
Until the time she has to go
A silent sigh
As we say goodbye
I don’t know why
She has to leave so soon tonight
She’s such a lovely sight

She leaves behind sweet reminders
The rim of her glass is still wet
She leaves around sweet reminders
That no one could ever forget
No one could ever forget

And she is the one who stole my heart
One little look I fall apart
So many dreams that would come true
If only she could love me too

And into the evening I sit by the window
And watch the sun sink in the sky
Indigo
And soft yellow
The night's aglow
With visions
Of what might have been
And I think of her again...

...when...

She leaves behind sweet reminders
The air smells like her perfume
She leaves behind sweet reminders
But sometimes I wonder for whom
Sometimes I wonder for whom

She leaves behind sweet reminders
The rim of her glass is still wet
She leaves around sweet reminders
That no one could ever forget
No one could ever forget
