Within Temptation Memories Lyrics

Last updated: 05/09/2013 01:48:08 PM

[Whisper] Memories, memories, memories

In this world you tried
Not leaving me alone behind
There's no other way
I'll pray to the gods: let him stay

The memories ease the pain inside
Now I know why

All of my memories
Keep you near
In silent moments
Imagine you'd be here
All of my memories
Keep you near
The silent whispers, silent tears

Made me promise I'd try
To find my way back in this life
I hope there is away
To give me a sign you're okay
Reminds me again
It's worth it all
So I can go home


Together in all these memories
I see your smile
All the memories I hold dear
Darling you know I love you till the end of time

"Memories" is the second single of the album The Silent Force of Dutch symphonic metal/rock band Within Temptation.

The Memories video tells the story of an aged Sharon den Adel who returns to her old house, which is now for sale. As she enters her old home, she is transformed into her younger self and the house is restored to how it is in her memories. In some scenes, den Adel walks around the house, haunted by memories of her old lover and in others, she is in a room with other band mates singing. Jeroen, the bands bassist, plays a double bass in one of the scenes from the past, while Martijn, their keyboard player, plays the piano.

As she leaves the house towards the end, she becomes her aged self again, and the house falls back into its current disrepair. From Wikipedia
