"Remember Me This Way" as written by and Linda/foster Thompson....
Every now and then
We find a special friend
Who never lets us down
Who understands it all
Reaches out each time you fall
You're the best friend that I've found

I know you can't stay
A part of you will never ever go away
Your heart will stay

I'll make a wish for you
And hope it will come true
That life would just be kind
To such a gentle mind
If you lose your way
Think back on yesterday
Remember me this way
Remember me this way

I don't need eyes to see
The love you bring to me
No matter where I go
And I know that you'll be there
Forever more a part of me, you're everywhere
I'll always care

And I'll be right behind your shoulder watching you
I'll be standing by your side and all you do
And I won't ever leave
As long as you believe
You just believe

I'll make a wish for you
And hope it will come true
That life would just be kind
To such a gentle mind
If you lose your way
Think back on yesterday
Remember me this way
Remember me this way

    General CommentI haven't heard or seen the lyrics to this song in so long. When I read them now, I got kinda choked up. This song is so deep. To me, it is all those friends you have that you may be far from, but you refuse to let go of. It is the true meaning of friendship.

    General CommentI like this song...
    I have a friend that I always think of when I hear this song...and we're not that close anymore, but whenever we get together...it's like...we're sisters that live across the country for each other...and since theres so much love there we can just pick up where we left off. i can always confide in her. and i think this song is kind of about that. You might move away from or grow apart from a good friend, but if they really are a good friend...you'll always wish them all the happiness in the world, and you'll always have a special place in their heart.

    General CommentOmg, this song is so beautiful. I hadnt heard it for years until I brought out my old casper video. It reminds me of a very special friend who I have that lives in a different state then me and no matter how far away he is, he'll always be in my heart and I will never lose him.

    'I know that you can't stay
    A part of you will never ever go away
    Your heart will stay'

    ^^This part makes me think of when he had to leave and we said goodbye :(

    And when it says "look back on yesterday" it reminds me to look back on yesterday and all the fun times we had when we were together.

    Thankyou

    General CommentThis song might just be the "Casper" song to some, but to me it has much deeper meaning. Three years ago I donated a kidney to my 8 year old nephew who was dying of total renal failure. Right before we went into surgery, I played this song for him. He's just as special to me as are my own five kids! Very touching words.

    General CommentIt's the song i sent to one of my closest friends, because it's the only one i found that's even a little bit like our friendship.. Everything about 'us' is so special, and no matter what might happen in the future, He'll always be in my heart and I'll love him forever!

    General CommentI just heard this song tonight and I have listened to it 3 more times. When the words play, its almost as if my late grandfather is talking to me. I watched him pass away with my own 2 eyes and felt his soul leave his body. This song has me in my feelings because I'm hitting a rough patch financially and Granddaddy's there to remind me that he os sending a special wish for me.
