Skid Row - I Remember You



"I Remember You" is a song by American heavy metal band Skid Row. It was released in November 1989 as the third single from their eponymous debut album.


This longing ballad is about a man who can't seem to let go of the girl he loves. As he obsesses over her and refuses to move on, his days are unending and his nights are sleepless.


The lyric is written by Rachel Bolan, a bass player on Skid Row who frequently writes about down-on-their-luck males who struggle to integrate into society. It was co-written by Bolan and guitarist Dave "Snake" Sabo.



Lyrics


Woke up to the sound of pouring rain The wind would whisper and I'd think of you And all the tears you cried – they called my name And when you needed me I came through Paint a picture of the days gone by When love went blind and you would make me see I'd stare a lifetime into your eyes So that I knew that you were there for me Time after time you were there for me Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand Love letters in the sands - I remember you And through the sleepless nights, through every endless day I wanna hear you say, "I remember you." We spent the summer with the top rolled down Wished ever after would be like this You said I love you babe, without a sound I said I'd give my life for just one kiss I'd live for your smile and die for your kiss Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand Love letters in the sands - I remember you And through the sleepless nights, through every endless day I wanna hear you say, "I remember you." We've had our share of hard times But that's the price we paid And through it all we kept the promise that we made I swear you'll never be lonely Woke up to the sound of pouring rain Washed away a dream of you But nothing else could ever take you away 'Cause you'll always be my dream come true Oh my darling, I love you Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand Love letters in the sands - I remember you Through the sleepless nights, through every endless day I wanna hear you say, "I remember you." Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand Love letters in the sands - I remember you. Through all the sleepless nights, through every endless day I wanna hear you say, "I remember, I remember you!"
