[Riff 1] x4

[Riff 1] x4 /w lyrics:

Sweet memories, flashing very quickly by.
Reminding me and giving me a reason why.
I know that my goal is more than a thought.
I'll be there when I teach what I've been taught, and I've been taught.

[Riff 2] x2 /w lyrics:

You know we've told you before, but you didn't hear us then.
So you still question why. No, you didn't listen again.

[Fill 1] x1 and [Riff 3] x1 /w lyrics:

You didn't listen again. Oh!

[Riff 4] x1

[Riff 1] x4 /w lyrics:

Sweet memories, I never thought it would be like this.
Reminding me of just how close I came to missing.
I know that this is the way for me to go.
You'll be there when you know what I know, and I know.

[Riff 2] x2 /w lyrics:

You know we've told you before, but you didn't hear us then.
So you still question why. No, you didn't listen again.

[Fill 2] x1 and [Riff 3] x1 /w lyrics:

No!

[Riff 4] x1

Woah. You didn't listen again.
