Femke and I created Perfect Memoirs’ theme song together. We then had an amazing house concert together last week! I loved seeing the expressions on many faces as they understood or “got” the songs as I or Femke played. Look for house concerts in your own community, and keep intimate, live music alive! House concerts are profitable for musicians and you can contribute in a fun way, so they can keep making music, these are hard times for them.
Memory Lane by Weidema & Wilbrink
When he sailed the raging sea, was he scared of what would be
Or hitched his wagon to a star, ‘cause it would take him far
Walking streets paved with gold where the nights were never cold
And people won’t grow old before their time
When I climb the Family Tree, I know so much more about me
I should write that down, I should save that story
I should write a book so the kids remember me
I’ve got things to say, I know they are still learning
I could steer away some pain with a drive down Memory Lane.
Did he find his wife to be, barn-raising in the field
Like grandpa found his bride and never left her side
Though many things were never said, he’d tell the story how they met
With love I won’t forget before my time.
When I climb the Family Tree, I know so much more about me.
REPEAT CHORUS and tag with:
I will write that down, I will save that story
I will write a book, I will write a perfect memoir
‘Cause I’ve got things to say, I know they are still learning
I will steer away some pain when they drive down my,
When they drive down my Memory Lane
