Memory, from Cats (by Andrew Lloyd Webber)

As performed on the London Cast Recording, circa 1981

Bb                            Gm
Midnight, not a sound on the pavement
                     D#                    Dm
Has the moon lost a memory? She is smiling alone
        Cm                            Gm
In the lamplight the withered leaves collect at my feet
         F              Bb
And the wind begins to moan

 Bb                      Gm
Memory, all alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days
I was beautiful then
    Cm                           Gm
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
        F           Bb
Let the memory live again

Dm     D#         Dm        D#
Every street lamp seems to beat 
    Dm   Bb   F 
A fatalistic warning
Dm       G            C           Am
Someone mutters and a street lamp flutters
    Dm      F       C
And soon it will be morning

Bb                        Gm 
Daylight, I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I mustn't give in
         Cm                            Gm
When the dawn comes tonight will be a memory too
       F           Bb
And a new day will begin


F#   -    D#m



G#m             D#m

C#   F#

A#m    B           A#m      B
Burnt out ends of smokey days
    A#m         F#       C#
The stale cold smell of morning
A#m            F#           G#        Fm                      
A street lamp dies another night is over
A#m      C#     G#
Another day is dawning


C#                        Bbm
Touch me, it's so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun
       D#m                              Bbm
If you touch me you'll understand what happiness is
G#                  C#
Look, a new day has begun
