Lyrics

Memories Fade (The Lost Ones) / Album Shadows Of Yesterday / January 01 2013
Lyrics by Paul Dempsey

(v1)
They can be seen sitting in a chair
With that blank distant stare
You wonder where they are
Wandering a fragmented mind
Looking for things left behind
Their journey has been very far

(v2)
Simple words become hard to find
Familiar faces don’t come to mind
No matter how hard they try
Suspended in a confused sleep
They often weep
And can’t really tell you why

(chorus)
They say when memories fade
It’s like someone’s drawing the shade
And the shadows that are cast
Serve only to obscure the past
They block part of the view
Later, far less light gets through

(v3)
A life that was once vibrant and alive
Struggles now to simply survive
And time is not their friend
Every new day must be so terrifying
They’re an adult, there’s no denying
But becoming a child again

(bridge)
And we hold their hands
Though they no longer know us
And speak softly to reassure them
But we feel helpless in the end

(chorus)
