As I wander through the memories of my life,
I see a smile that never fades with time.
I hear a voice that whispers in my mind.
A laugh rings soft and clear.
I turn and you feel near,
And suddenly you're here again with me, from the echoes of your life.

In younger days, our time would never end.
The songs we played surrounded us like long lost friends.
I didn't know the day would come when I would sing alone.
I wonder where you are... and then the music starts.
From somewhere deep inside you touch my heart,
From the echoes of your life.

And now the music cradles me,
Like a mother holds a child,
Like the harbor holds the sea,
Like the darkness holds the light.

Now I know, your being here with me
And all the songs we shared,
Are the wings to keep my spirit soaring.

It's good to know we're never far apart.
And though you're gone,
You still live on deep in my heart.
It took awhile for me to understand,
That all the pain and tears,
The loneliness of years,
Are bridges to a life that waits for me,
From the Echoes of my life.
From the Echoes of my life.
