"I Will Remember You" as written by and John/dioguardi Shanks....
Eight years later, time goes by fast
Got my memories and they will last
I try to keep it simple 'cause I hate goodbyes
I try to keep it simple by telling myself that

I, I will remember you and all of the things that we've gone through
There is so much I can say, but words get in the way so
We're not together, I will remember you

I will remember you

We're a picture in my mind
And when I wanna find you, I just close my eyes
You'll never be that far from me so don't say goodbye 'cause
You'll never be that far from me, I'm telling myself that

I, I will remember you and all of the things that we've gone through
There is so much I can say, but words get in the way so
We're not together, I will remember you

You were there when I needed a friend
Thank you, thank you
I never told you how much that meant
God, thank you, thank you

I will remember you and all of the things that we've gone through
There is so much I can say, but words get in the way so

I, I will remember you and all of the things that we've gone through
There is so much I can say, but words get in the way so
We're not together, I will remember
We're not together, I will remember you

Ooh, I will remember you

    General CommentWhoa! About half a year later no one has added a comment? This is a great song and I'm sure that everyone has a meaning for it. The title pretty much tells the song.

    This song reminds me of my best friend from elementary school. I was really good friends with him but one day I had to move to a new school. And I moved to many schools, and I hated it! We still kept in touch on e-mail which was great. Then he told me that he was moving to a new school too but worse... moving to a completely new place! I was crushed. Then on, we didn't e-mail or talk on MSN that much... We drifted apart. I know everyone hates that part. As the years went by quickly, one summer I signed online on MSN and right when I was on, he spoke to me. It was a short conversation but it will always be special to me. I'm not in touch with him anymore but I wish I was... Whenever I hear this song I think about him. But somehow, I know that I'll see him again, I just know it.

    General Commenti love this song. it's sad to hear, because it's true that people grow apart, and it's never easy. he's talking about how he has a friend who will forever be a part of him. no matter what happens. and he will always remember everything about their time spent together. great song!

    General CommentI love this song. I heard it on So you think you can dance, which usually picks really good songs for when people are leaving. It reminds me of my senior class and how we weren't all so close, but we all knew each other in one way or another. Its like, on graduation day, you're all welled up with emotion and you don't know what to say, but the most important thing seems to be that you will remember them all. And in SYTYCD, the bonds they make with people on the show, working with them and finding out about who they are, it makes it so much harder to leave, but its just important that they'll be remembered. When you leave high school to go to college its the same thing: you don't want to forget people, and they probably don't want to be forgotten either. Its when you may not be in touch with someone, but you still remember them. Its the thought that counts. The memories are so important. This song applies to so many things.
    It goes in the category with the awesome goodbye songs. Its just simple. Its hard to say goodbye, but its just important that people know that you'll remember them. So its all you have to say, instead of all the words that would get in the way.

    General Commentwell lets say this. i fucking HATE THIS SONG. My best friend is who im in love with. right? so ive tried over a year to get her back. but no luck. i had a few chancec but i mean, she wont understand. i was stupid then. and that was when I doddnt even know myself, that i was truly in love. but not I know. Ive never felt like this about anyone before. so anyways, she has feelings for another one of her best friends and stuff. and like. idk. i have a thing with him where we hate each other cause out bad past. but w/e. tonight i pretty much went crazy. i felt like killing him. she will never know how much I love her.

    General CommentI like this song. I used to love it, but now I just like it occasionally.
    I think this makes a great grad song, honestly. It makes me think of all my friends I had in old towns that I had to move away from because of my dad and the military moving him... it doesn't make me think of any friend in particular, but just about all the people that have accepted me enough to call 'friend' (or an 'acquainted friend')

    General CommentThis song made me freakin sob. I couldn't stop crying when I heard this. I think it could be about moving on, or breaking up. Anything involving leaving somehow. = (

    General CommentLove this song. It can evoke that kind of warm, bittersweet feeling.
    First heard this song in So You Think You Can Dance S3.
    Ever since the song appeared as the bgm when the show finished, I couldn't let go of this song!
    I can so relate to the song as in:

    Eight years later
    Time goes by fast
    Got my memories
    And they will last
    I try to keep it simple 'cuz I hate goodbyes
    I try to keep it simple but telling myself that

    I, I will remember you
    And all of the things that we've gone through

    All my friends met in high school, for seven years, I can't believe it's such a long time already!
    And there is someone I really love...I'll remember all of them.
    Those memories are so valuable, I know I don't show it usually, but we've built a bonding that'll be inseparable in our lives..'We're a picture in my mind'

    When I think of school, despite the study and work, the school is composed of people, friends and teachers. So I'll definitely miss school, miss all of us in uniform, miss the picture of us, our class.
    Always the days.
