MEMORY – Andrew Lloyd Webber

C                              Am
Midnight. Not a sound from the pavement.
                      F                       Em
Has the moon lost her mem’ry? She is smiling alone.
       Dm7                              Am7
In the lamplight the withered leaves collect at my feet
        G7             C
And the wind begins to moan.

C                        Am
Mem’ry. All alone in the moonlight
                   F                         Em
I can smile at the old days, I was beautiful then.
  Dm7                           Am7
I remember the time I knew what happiness was,
        G7           C    [B, A]
Let the mem’ry live again.

Em    Em/F   Dm/F Em       Em/F Dm/F Em  C  D   G        [G, F#]
Ev’ry street lamp seems to beat  a   fatalistic warning.
Em      A7            Dmaj7       G            Em      A7      D
Someone mutters and a street lamp sputters and soon it will be morning.

C                              Am
Daylight.  I must wait for the sunrise,
                  F                            Em
I must think of a new life, and I mustn’t give in.
         Dm7                          Am
When the dawn comes tonight will be a memory too
      G7           C      [G, Ab, Bb]
And a new day will begin.

Cm        Cm/C# Bbm/C# Cm    Cm/C#     Cm         Ab           Eb     [Eb, D]
Burnt out ends  of     smoky days, the stale cold smell of the morning.
Cm7             Fm7           Bb7      Ebmaj7 Cm     F7     Bb Bb7
The street lamp dies, another night is over, another day is dawning.

Eb                        Cm
Touch me. It’s so easy to leave me
                   Ab                       Gm7
All alone with the mem’ry of my days in the sun.
       Fm7              Fm              Cm
If you touch me, you’ll understand what happiness is.
N.C.    Bb9sus        Eb
Look, a new day has begun.
