From the Film:             The Way We Were  1973 (F)
Memories light the corner of my mind.
                                          Misty water color memories
                                          Of the way we were.

                                          Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind,
                                          Smiles we gave to one another
                                          For the way we were.

                                          Can it be that it was all so simple then,
                                          Or has time rewritten every line?
                                          If we had the chance to do it all again,
                                          Tell me? would we? could we?
                                          Memories may be beautiful and yet,
                                          What's too painful to remember
                                          We simply choose to forget.
                                          So it's the laughter
                                          We will remember,
                                          Whenever we remember
                                          The way we were;
                                          The way we were.
