"Memory" as written by and Juergen/de Leon Mutschall....
Anything we should know about your change?
I still remember the sound of your voice calling out my name
And I still remember my face examining itself,
Knowing things would never be the same
I still remember your smiling face across a crowded room
I still remember, through the weathering of time,
That first embrace that sealed our doom

Your eyes stare at me from every storefront
And your voice calls to me from every restaurant
And your laughter pierces me as I stand beneath the open sky
And your absence murders me as I sleep perchance to die
Seems like to escape is what I ought to do,
But every road I take brings me back to you

I am frozen in the moment, clinging to your memory
And I don't want the ignorance
That a spotless mind would bring,
But I'm scared my dying breath may be your name

It's just like I sang to you:
Everyone knows that we live in a world
Where people give bad names to beautiful things
And if it's really true that people should leav
Once they've got what they came for,
I certainly hope that you're holding it close to you now

I am frozen in the moment, clinging to your memory
And I don't want the ignorance
That a spotless mind would bring,
But I'm scared my dying breath may be your name

I still remember the sunlight on your face that warm November day
I still remember my heartbeat quickened by desire,
Unaware of prices I would pay
I still remember the closing door the night we said goodbye
I still remember losing you for good
And knowing that a part of me had died
Seems like to escape is what I ought to do,
But every road I take brings me back to you

I am frozen in the moment
(Please do not forget me)
Clinging to your memory
('Cause I will not forget you)
And I don't want the ignorance
That a spotless mind would bring,
But I'm scared my dying breath may be your name
Please let me be frozen in the moment
Let me hold on to those memories
And I pray that things will be all right
And I pray you'll think of me tonight
And I know somehow I'll be all right,
And I hope that you're the same,
But I'm scared my dying breath may be your name

    General CommentBoy oh boy do I know what he means. Obviously a song about losing the love of his life and his inability to recover and move on. This song was my anthem for a long time.

    General CommentDefinitely, one of the best songs by Redemption. The meaning is obvious.

    Nick Van Dyk writes great and powerful lyrics.
