lyrics

TO BE REMEMBERED
One afternoon in London you walked me through your garden
And showed those trees you planted for every love you had

All would love to be remembered
How we all would love to be remembered

I texted you on my journey, what tree would you plant for me?
You wrote back, I’d be a weeping willow
A melancholy tree but the roots grow deep underneath
Because boy, she’s a heavy feeder

All would love to be remembered
How we all would love to be remembered

Well, I’m rooted by a river to gaze at my reflection
Find it hard to let things go but I’ve finally turned the page

Be glad you’re not alone
And although you’re not with me, so glad that we have grown
And I’m not ashamed to say, it is you in these words and these melodies
Well, I hope that it meets your approval

All would love to be remembered
All would love to be remembered
How we all would love to be remembered
