"love remembers" as written by and Philip O'donnell Craig Morgan....
You can't forget what love was wearing
When it walked out your front door
Where you fell down to your knees
And can't forget the kind of suitcase
That was packed out on the sidewalk
While you cried there beggin' please
But love remembers

You can lie and tell yourself
You're over it and someone else will take love's place
And this is for the best
You can lie in that bed
In a stranger's arms reachin' for comfort
Close your eyes and still get no rest

Cause love remembers
The smell of a summer day
Lying in a hammock over fresh cut grass
And the promise of forever
Yeah love remembers
The sound of the pouring rain
Beatin' down on the top of a car
On the side of the road
Where it couldn't wait
Yeah love remembers

You might convince yourself
There's shelter in a bottle
For a while there it might numb the pain
But when it hits you, then it hits you
That love's still gone and you'll be wishin'
That you'd poured it down the drain
'Cause love remembers

The taste of cotton candy lip gloss
On the lips of a long kiss
And the plans they made together
Yeah love remembers
To feel the fingertips
Running through soakin' wet hair
On the bank after a midnight swim
Yeah love remembers

Yeah love remembers
The smell of a summer day
Lying in a hammock over fresh cut grass
And the promise of forever
Love remembers
The sound of the pouring rain
Beating down on the top of a car
On the side of the road
Where it couldn't wait
Yeah love remembers

Love remembers
(Love remembers)
(The sound of the pouring rain)
Beating down on the top of a car
(On the side of the road)
(Where it couldn't wait)

    General CommentI love this song... Love does remember...
    Every time you think you're over it, something else hits you.

    I did want to make a correction. The beginning is:
    You can forget what love was wearing
    When it walked out your front door
    Where you fell down to your knees
    And can forget the kind of suitcase
    That was packed out on the sidewalk
    While you cried there beggin' please
    But love remembers

    He's saying you can tell yourself you've forgotten, but if you see it (the outfit, shirt, suitcase, etc), it all comes flooding back.

    General CommentThis song has a very special meaning to me. I'm married. I have been for 7 years. & everytime I think that our marriage is over, Love Remembers. Little things that made me fall in love with him come flooding back. All of our plans, everything. I honestly think that is the only reason we are still together, because we Love Remembers everything.

    I know that's not what this song is saying, but that's the way I hear it. And I believe with everything that is the truth about my marriage.

    General CommentI think this song could go to ways.

    1. The girls leaving and the guy is telling her if she leaves, her memories will get to her, even when she's with someone else.

    2. The guy is thinking about a time when he almost lost her, and hes just thinking of all their memories together and he remembers the reason why he loves her.

    I think it might be the second one cuz the song has a happy sound to it. Plus the music video is about a happy couple.
