Sweet Memories Lyrics - Willie Nelson

Review The Song (1)

My world is like a river as dark as it is deep
Night after night the past slips in and gathers all my sleep
My days are just an endless stream of emptiness to me
Filled only by the fleeting moments of her memories
Sweet memories sweet memories hmm

She slipped into the silence of my dreams last night
Wondering from room to room turning on each light
Her laughter spills like water from the river to the sea
And I'm swept away from sadness clinging to her memories
Sweet memories sweet memories hmm

This is a quintessential Willie reflection. A soft melody that tells a powerful tale of love lost. The hook phrase “And I’m swept away from sadness clinging to her memories” is a haunting portrayal of the helplessness of love lost. Although it is seldom heard in his current repertoire it is one of his most poignant ballards. Surely this is a must for any Willy collection.
