Sarah McLachlan

I Will Remember You

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I'm so tired, I can't sleep
Standin' on the edge of something much too deep
It's funny how we feel so much but cannot say a word
Though we are screaming inside, we can't be heard

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I'm so afraid to love you, more afraid to lose
Clinging to a past that doesn't let me choose
Once there was a darkness, deep and endless night
Gave me everything he had, oh he gave me life

And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
No weep not for the memories

And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

    They played this song when I was on a telethone for muscular dystrify.
    My sister, Alexandra passed away from that unfortunate disease & everytime I hear it I cry.
    I miss her so much & this song is a reminder that although she's gone; what we shared, our sisterly bond, will Never be Forgotten.
    Love Adore Always sissy.

    I know I've heard this song before but I was at a very low point in my life needing to make a huge decision about someone and this song came on the radio. I couldn't leave my car until it was over. I wanted them to play it again. It's like I heard it for the very first time and I believe it will always make me feel this way. This song is awesome. Its real and alive and has no bounderies, it will touch everyone!!!!

    tonight this song came on when my boyfriend and i were in the car. he had told me about how before his brother died he dedicated it to his girlfriend. i started to make me tear up. this song is very touching. he sang some of the song to me and kissed me afterwards, i think this song will always have meaning to him and i can't help but think that this may as well be our song. [dedicated from me]

    I'm having a really hard time with my husband right now... to the point that it's all but officially over. Hearing this song tonight was completely ramdom and it made me cry even more tears that I swore I was done crying for what could have been, but at the same time, I hope it makes it a little easier for him, too.

    I look back on a lot of memories and cry because I'll never get to go through that same exact memory ever again. Cherish the time you have. You only get one life. Be worth something. I love this song. Don't cry over the past. Look forward to the future. It'll get good too.

    My mom meant so much to me, she passed away on September 26, I still miss her so much, and this song keeps popping up on Pandora every day so I'm thinking it's her asking me to keep her in thoughts. Thanks Sarah, love all your songs, what a great artist you are.

    This was a song that played during my grandmother funeral, she and I were best friends. And now i feel that there no point of life without her. Also now, my cat is dying, I believe this is one of the hardess songs to listen to in my life now cause it seems like everyone that i love must leave me at the wrong time in live. And Now i must move on but i just cant seem find the right steps to follow. And I still cant seem to finish listening to this BEAUTIFUL song. :(

    My mother and my "Super Hero" went home to the Lord on March 25, 2008 after 80 wonderful years of life. In June of 2009, Courtney Dawn, one of my nieces and one of my mother's ten grandchildren at age 17, completed and published a Powerpoint presentation entitled "Tribute To An Angle" featuring several photographs of Mom, and places and things that were meaningful to her in her life. This song, "I Will Remember You" by Sarah McLachlen, was the theme song that Courtney Dawn selected and integrated into into her masterpiece to honor Mom. Sarah, God Bless you for a song of such beauty.

    This is the perfect song to express my feelings for my two boys, Alec and Ben, that I gave up for adoption many years ago. I think of them every day and this song brings me to happy tears every time. I will always love you boys, wherever you are...

    Beautiful song - I was reading all of the comments and can totally relate to everyone that has lost someone lately. My Mom passed away recently and the pain is almost too much to handle. Somehow this song makes me feel her presence.... I love you so much Mom. To Stepaniee that posted here - I hope you are ok, I cried when I read your post. Why do things always seem to happen all at once. My thoughts are with you, where ever you are.
