It’s Easy To Remember

Words by Lorenz Hart, Music by Richard Rodgers

Your sweet expression
The smile you gave me
The way you looked when we met
It’s easy to remember
But so hard to forget

I hear you whisper
“I’ll always love you”
I know it’s over, and yet
It’s easy to remember
But so hard to forget

So I must dream
To have your hand caress me
Fingers press me tight
I’d rather dream
Than have that lonely feeling
Stealing through the night

Each little moment
Is clear before me
And though it brings me regret
It’s easy to remember
But so hard to forget
