You gave me a reason, to laugh when I was down
And you are all I feel for, or care for in this town
Where we are the only two dreamers alive
We've got to leave, we can only survive
Where all of this will be, a vague memory
We see old friends and lovers, with sadness in their eyes

Dark empty places, we don't quite recognize
Yes baby the world that we once knew now seems
To be be fading like scenes from old dreams
It's fading gradually, like a vague memory
A vague memory, may never go away
But it won't bring you down, day after day
For those who can't feel what a young heart can feel

This place holds something familiar and real
But for you and me, it's a vague memory
You gave me a reason to laugh when I was down
And you are all I feel for, or care for in this town
Whenever I hold you I know in my heart
That it soon will move on and restart
And all of this will be, just a vague memory.

A vague memory, may never go away
But it won't bring you down, day after day
For those who can't feel what a young heart can feel
This place holds something familiar and real
For you and me, it's a vague memory
Yes, for you and me, it's a vague memory
Just a vague memory.
A vague memory.
