"The Memory Will Never Die" as written by and Dallas Hendry/hora Smith....
I whisper in your ear
The words you want to hear
You fell the wind and it reminds you
It happens every time
You stop and close your eyes
You can't deny what lives inside you
Well I know it's all to see
What is meant to be
When yesterday's so far behind you

Deep inside your soul though
I'm always there

[Chorus]
You made be believe
The day you surrendered to me
The memory will never die
The love that you gave
I'll never throw it away
The memory will never die


The tides take a turn
Another lesson learned
I'm right here but still you wonder
But you say you need more
And it's not what it was before
Your on your own and going under

Deep inside your soul though
I'm always there

[Chorus]

Whenever you wake up
Remember you gave up
All that you had from nothing at all
The bed that you lay in
Remember you made it
And nobody's there to catch you when you fall

You made be believe
The day you surrendered to me
The memory will never die

The love that you gave
I'll never throw it away
The memory will never die
You made me believe
The day you surrendered to me
The memory will never die
The love that you gave
I'll never throw it away
The memory will never die

    General CommentI listened to this song alot around when I graduated high school last year. it helped me remember the many great memories I had with my friends over the years. I think though its about a couple having to leave each other most likely for reasons beyond their control and trying not to forget the good times they had. I don't think it is referring to a break up because it sounds like he would not necessarily want to leave the relationship.

    General CommentI heard this song last spring, a month before I moved to another city. It was the best spring of my life so far and even though lots of great things happened, I was always thinking about how hard it would be to move and leave all my friends.

    This song reminds me, that even if I'm far away from my true friends the memories of all the fun we had together will never die! But there always is something negative. The memories can be a plague, espescially the happy ones...

    When I feel like sh*t, this song can cheer me up and next time it will bring me down, because I can't let go all the beautiful people and I hate the new town I live in...

    General CommentI actually think this is a negative song. I think it's about a man and a woman. When they get together she tells him that their memories will never die and they'll always be a part of each other. This turns out to be true but in a bad way, as her memories of such wonderful times gives her a constant reminder of what she gave up. He's always a part of her so she can never forget what she's lost.
    "Whenever you wake up
    Remember you gave up
    All that you had for nothing at all
    The bed that you lay in
    Remember you made it
    And nobody’s there to catch you when you fall"
    This reflects my view.

    General CommentI think this is a song about regrets.The person's significant other broke up with them so it's more or less about how they are saying they are gonna be missing them.

    'Whenever you wake up
    Remember you gave up
    All that you had from nothing at all
    The bed that you lay in
    Remember you made it
    And nobody’s there to catch you when you fall'
    so they are saying you lost me, I may not be happy with it but neither will you when the time comes when you need me the most. Totally relatable for my past relationship. I will never forget all we went through but he's gonna miss me later on.
