SHOEBOX
Tom Jackson/Jon Park-Wheeler

I keep your memories
Up in a shoebox
I think thereís a picture
And a lock of your hair
There are some letters
Tied up in a ribbon
A locket, an earring
And things you would wear
And thereís so much more
Thatís what memories are for

I can hear the tick tock
Of the clock on the mantel
Smell the lilac
On the evening breeze
I can hear the song of the whippoorwill
The raindrops falling through the trees
I can see the sunlight
Dancing in the meadow
Then I see you look my way
For just a little while Iím a young man again
Till itís time to put the shoebox away

There are some moments
That I see so clearly
That I loved so dearly
Weíd waltz so slow
We would go walking
At four in the morning
Love strikes without warning
Then youíd hold me so close
And thereís so much more
Thatís what memories are for

I can hear the tick tock
Of the clock on the mantel
Smell the lilac
On the evening breeze
I can hear the song of the whippoorwill
The raindrops falling through the trees
I can see the sunlight
Dancing in the meadow
Then I see you look my way
For just a little while Iím a young man again
Till itís time to put the shoebox away

And oh, it gives me peace
Gentle sweet release
To hold you in my arms once more

I can see the sunlight
Dancing in the meadow
Then I see you look my way
Iím a young man again
Till itís time to put the shoebox away
