Let Me Keep My Memories

Let Me Keep My Memories

(Ken Carson)

You can take the picture that you gave me
You can have the ring I gave you, if you please
You can have them all, my dear
Every precious souvenir
But let me keep my memories

You can take the letters that I wrote you
And I’ll give you back the ones you wrote to me
Every word came from my heart
But now that we’re apart
Let me keep my memories

Take back the love that once you gave me
Take back the arms that held me tight
Take back the dreams we shared together
And I will dream my dreams alone tonight

All these things I give to you, my darlin’
If you wish for more, just tell me, if you please
If you so desire, sweetheart
you can have my broken heart
But let me keep my memories
