say memories are golden, well maybe that is true.
never wanted memories, I only wanted you.
million times i cried. A million times i wished you were here.
only heartaches could build a path, and tears bring you back.
chain will link one by one, till we all meet again."
to Tickles and Jared - from Kayla
Try to Understand
|I'll lend you, for a little
A rattie friend, He said,
For you to love while she
And mourn when she is dead.
|She'll bring her charms to
And shall her stay be brief,
You'll have her loving memories
As solace for your grief.
|I've looked the wide world
In search for teachers true,
And from the throngs that
crowd life's lanes,
I have selected you.
|I fancied that I heard you
Lord, thy will be done.
For all the joy this rat will
the risk of grief I'll run.
|And should you call for her
Much sooner than I planned,
I'll brave the bitter grief
And try to understand.
|It may be one or two years,
Or maybe even three,
But, will you, 'til I take
Take care of her for me?
|I cannot promise she will
Since all from earth return,
But there is are lessons taught
I want this rat to learn.
|Now will you give her lots
Nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come
To take her back again?
|I'll shelter her with tenderness.
I'll love her while I may.
And for the happiness I've
Forever grateful stay.

clear, but worth the download effort. Jared had a real mellow voice.
