        Now that I remember who you are
        I have to come to you
        Now I see I never can go too far
        to find someone like you

        And I'll be ready when
        you pass my way again
        And I've heard about you on the wind
        and oh, what a spark of life you've been

        My memory girl, you've made me aware
        my memory girl, you've always been there
        Memory girl, so welcome and sweet
        memory girl, you're so good to me
        Memory girl, I wish that I could see

        My memory girl

        In the deepest part of what I am
        and what you mean to me
        There has always been a hidden plan
        that was unseen to me

        And now I see you are
        right where you'll always be
        And like a guiding star
        you keep reminding me

        My memory girl, you've made me aware
        my memory girl, you've always been there
        Memory girl, so welcome and clear
        memory girl, you've always been there
        Memory girl, I wish that you are here

        My memory girl

        My memory girl, you've made me aware
        memory girl, you've always been there
        Memory girl, so welcome and sweet
        memory girl, you're so good to me
        Memory girl, I wish that I could see

        My memory girl
        oh, I wish that I could see you now
        Everyday, I remember
        oh, everyday .... I cound see you now
        Everyday
