Thanks For The Memories - Lyrics by Hollies


Lyrics
(clarke / sylvester / hicks)
Smile from the wall is all I need
Even though it ain't the real thing
Sepia shades signature signed thanks for the memories
Something else on the shelf
I pass by every day
I reach out and touch and I feel good
Thanks for the memories
Restaurant booked for one
I'm sittin' at a table for two
People think I'm on my own
But I know that ain't true
Don't shed no tears for me
I'm happy this way
To have loved and lost is better
Than no love at all(repeat)
Friends come by to wish me well
Say hey you must be feelin' down
But a smile from the wall is all I need
Thanks for the memories
Thanks for the memories
