MEMORIES DON'T LEAVE LIKE PEOPLE DO (John M. Glover / James Dean / Johnny Bristol / Jerry Butler) Johnny Bristol -1974 Bunny Brown - 1974 Johnny Mathis - 1974 Tom Jones - 1975 Patti Boulaye - 1978 Close my mind, shut out the world Walking to my pride of Harlem No one there, but you and me, girl And our love before our problems There I kiss you with my mind Over and over, time after time I've learned that the past is never far behind So it's there to remind me Memories don't leave like people do They always stay with you Whether they've been good or bad There never something that you had Memories don't leave like people do They always stay with you Whether they've been good or bad There never something that you had People take all of the time Walk out of your life and try to hurt you But a memory wouldn't be that unkind Playing to be a friend, then desert you But I find joy in all the pain Though your body is gone, the soul remains The question is why did you have to leave You could've been as faithful as a memory, 'cause you see Memories don't leave like people do They always stay with you Whether they've been good or bad There never something that you had Memories don't leave like people do They always stay with you Whether they've been good or bad There never something that you had But I find joy in all the pain Though your body is gone, the soul remains The question is why did you have to leave You could've been as faithful as a memory, 'cause you see Memories don't leave like people do They always stay with you Whether they've been good or bad There never something that you had Memories don't leave like people do They always stay with you Whether they've been good or bad There never something that you had (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2018)
