Mickey Newbury - "Sweet Memories" lyrics

My world is like a river
As dark as it is deep
Night after night
The past slips in
Gathers all my sleep

My days are just an endless stream
Of emptiness to me
Filled only by the fleeting
Moments of of her memory

Sweet memories
Sweet memories

She slipped into the silence
Of my dreams last night
Wandering from room to room
Shes turning on each light

Her laughter spills like water
From the river to the sea
Lord I'm swept away from sadness
Clinging to her memory

Sweet memories
Sweet memories
