Lyrics

MEANING OF A MEMORY

 

There is a candle burning now for you

In a little church in San Antonio

No one can tell me what good it will do

They say I’m faithless

As if I need to know

 

You’ll have a pray recited, everyday

And a minister will mention you by name

While I’m up north a thousand miles away

I feel no warmth from such a distant flame

 

Chorus

But I still know the meaning of a memory

And I‘ll take any comfort I can find

And as I fall asleep tonight

I’ll think of how you’d love that light

And make my dreams a little less unkind

 

 

It never feels to me like you’re at rest

In a way you’re busy adding to my doubt

That candle flickers aimlessly at best

It won’t mean anything when it burns out

 

Chorus
