I remember all my life
Raining down as cold as ice
Shadows of a man
A face through a window
Crying in the night
The night goes into

Morning, just another day
Happy people pass my way
Lookin' in their eyes
I see a memory
I never realized
How happy you made me, oh Mandy



Well you came and you left without takin'
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
Well, you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I sent you away

Standing on the edge of time
I walked away when love was mine
Caught up in a world of uphill climbing
The tears are in my eyes
And nothing is rhyming

Morning, just another day
Happy people pass my way
Lookin' in their eyes
I see a memory
I never realized
How happy you made me, oh Mandy

Well you came and you left without takin'
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
Well, you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I sent you away, oh Mandy

Yesterday's a dream
I face the morning
Crying on a breeze
The pain is calling, oh Mandy

Well you came and you left without takin'
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
Well, you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I sent you away

You came and you gave without takin'
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
You kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I sent you away, oh Mandy

    General CommentWell I remember this song from when I was a kid...this is a Barry Manilow remake. This version is MUCH better in my mind, but I do recall liking the original version too. I'm wanting to say Elton John also did a version of it, and I know that the Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies also did a version. God only knows who else has done this cover, but it's a timeless tune that lives on through the years. Of course...now I feel old since no one else here seemed to know much about this song....I'm showing my age again....

    General CommentThis is an awesome song, I have it, I got mine off ares (P2P program) but you can probally get it on kazaa or something, I have only heard the live version, which I don't know that any others exist but, the live version has really really poor sound quality which is a bit of a bummer cause if you like blink 182/BCR you will love this song. I can remember lisitioning to it on streamwave somewhere. dunno though, good luck, if anyone manages to find a good quality one it would be heaps apprecited if you posted where to get it.

    General Commenti'm not a fan of Barry Manilow, and when i heard BCR did a live cover of this song i thought it would suck
    but i downloaded it anyway and it was very nifty! but i still don't like Barry Manilow
