Memory, from Cats (by Andrew Lloyd Webber)

As performed on the London Cast Recording, circa 1981

Bb                            Gm
Midnight, not a sound on the pavement
                     Eb                    Dm
Has the moon lost a memory? She is smiling alone
        Cm                            Gm
In the lamplight the withered leaves collect at my feet
         F              Bb
And the wind begins to moan

 Bb                      Gm
Memory, all alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days
I was beautiful then
    Cm                           Gm
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
        F           Bb
Let the memory live again

Dm     Eb         Dm        Eb
Every street lamp seems to beat 
    Dm   Bb   F 
A fatalistic warning
Dm       G            C           Am
Someone mutters and a street lamp flutters
    Dm      F       C
And soon it will be morning

Bb                        Gm 
Daylight, I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I mustn't give in
         Cm                            Gm
When the dawn comes tonight will be a memory too
       F           Bb
And a new day will begin

Bbm    B           Bbm      B
Burnt out ends of smokey days
    Bbm         F#       C#
The stale cold smell of morning
Bbm            F#           Ab        Fm                      
A street lamp dies another night is over
Bbm      C#     Ab
Another day is dawning


C#                        Bbm
Touch me, it's so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun
       Ebm                              Bbm
If you touch me you'll understand what happiness is
Ab                  C#
Look, a new day has begun
