  • Here's to the ones that we got
    Cheers to the wish you were here, but you're not
    'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
    Of everything we've been through
    Toast to the ones here today
    Toast to the ones that we lost on the way
    'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
    And the memories bring back, memories bring back you

    There's a time that I remember, when I did not know no pain
    When I believed in forever, and everything would stay the same
    Now my heart feel like December when somebody say your name
    'Cause I can't reach out to call you, but I know I will one day, yeah

    Everybody hurts sometimes
    Everybody hurts someday, aye aye
    But everything gon' be alright
    Go and raise a glass and say, aye

    Here's to the ones that we got
    Cheers to the wish you were here, but you're not
    'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
    Of everything we've been through
    Toast to the ones here today
    Toast to the ones that we lost on the way
    'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
    And the memories bring back, memories bring back you

    Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
    Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
    Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo
    Memories bring back, memories bring back you

    There's a time that I remember when I never felt so lost
    When I felt all of the hatred was too powerful to stop (ooh, yeah)
    Now my heart feel like an ember and it's lighting up the dark
    I'll carry these torches for ya that you know I'll never drop, yeah

    Everybody hurts sometimes
    Everybody hurts someday, aye aye
    But everything gon' be alright
    Go and raise a glass and say, aye

    Here's to the ones that we got (oh oh)
    Cheers to the wish you were here, but you're not
    'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
    Of everything we've been through (no, no)
    Toast to the ones here today (aye)
    Toast to the ones that we lost on the way
    'Cause the drinks bring back all the memories (aye)
    And the memories bring back, memories bring back you

    Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
    Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
    Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo
    Memories bring back, memories bring back you
    Doo doo, doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo
    Doo doo, doo doo, doo doo doo (ooh, yeah)
    Memories bring back, memories bring back you

    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no

  • Carol From Chico from Chico, CaI adore Adam’s talent and music. I listen to CD’s of all of his fantastic songs. Memories is the best. I have lost 6 of 8 family members and Adam’s song brings back wonderful Memories. BTW, Memories is still in the top 100 a year after release. I believe many love it like I do.

Literally every day to and from hospital!! He passed away December 18, 2019! Blood clot!! Pulinmary embolism!! 3/4 through his surgery!! But your saying played every single day for a good month when I went to hospital AND on my way home from hospital! Never thought it would be "My Song"!! Thank you Adam!!!!! It hits me right to my heart! And every time I hear it I blare the radio and if appropriate... Drink a beer!!! In honor of him!!
