"I'll Remember" as written by and Madonna Ciccone Patrick Leonard....
Hmm, hmm
Say goodbye
Not knowing when
The truth in my whole life began
Say goodbye
Not knowing how to cry
You taught me that

And I'll remember
The strength that you gave me
Now that I'm standing on my own
I'll remember
The way that you saved me
I'll remember

Inside I was a child
That could not mend a broken wing
Outside I looked for a way
To teach my heart to sing

And I'll remember
The love that you gave me
Now that I'm standing on my own
I'll remember
The way that you changed me
I'll remember

I learned
To let go
Of the illusion
That we can possess
I learned to let go
I travel in stillness
And I'll remember happiness
I'll remember, hmm

I'll remember, hmm
And I'll remember
The love that you gave me
Now that I'm standing on my own
I'll remember
The way that you changed me
I'll remember (I'll rememeber)

Now I'll never be afraid to cry
Now I finally have a reason why

I'll remember (I'll remember)
Now I'll never be afraid to cry
Now I finally have a reason why

I'll remember (I'll remember)
Now I'll never be afraid to cry
And I finally have a reason why

I'll remember (I'll remember)
Now I'll never be afraid to cry
And I finally have a reason why

Remember

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a mentor to madonna who has passed on..probably a dance teacher or a close friend/mentor probably with AIDS..and they died (I learned to let go)...

    General CommentThis song is about breaking up. It happens when you least expect it leaving you so unprepaired. Although you will eventually get over it you will never ever forget.True Love is too powerful to forget.

    General CommentI actually see this song as something between anyone really. From friends, to lovers, and even to those who lose family members, they can relate to this song.

    General CommentIts thanking the person who caused the hurt..because in the end the victim has grown more from it, and now also all those times she remembers the happiness that went with it before

    General CommentI remember listening to this song for hours and hours when my boyfriend and I broke up. It made me realize that I could take something positive from the entire relationship and always have something to remember. He changed me and basically that's what the song is about-different changes.

    General Commentthis was used in that movie "with Honors". I think it's about losing someone who has taught you so much. could be a lover, but I see it being sung to a great friend or family memeber.

    General Commenttaking something positive out of something negative. perhaps a breakup, but not a bad one. the other person taught her a lot & she'll look back upon the relationship fondly

    General CommentFor all the people going off to college...this is relevant. I'm going off to college soon and a very good friend of mine is going to a different country to go to college (Oxford). I'm going to miss him...I listen to this song though, and it makes me remember all of the six years we've had together. It makes it hurt less.

    General CommentYou're remembering good times with someone you had at some point in your life--whether it's a friend, family member, significant other, and you want it back, but you can only reflect on the memories!

    General CommentI had never heard this song until I met my ex-wife, she had it on her computer. It's true though - even though it didn't last, as much as the break-up hurt me, being with her benefitted me so much.
