Amnesia… written by Randy Batiquin

Amnesia by Randy Batiquin

Baby look at me please, just a little bit longer
I wont sleep ’til I know you are fine
Listen close to my voice and I pray you remember
let me carry you back to the time

The day we first met, how we thought it was perfect
when the band played an endearing tune
over coffee and pastries, how we stared at each other
in that one rainy sweet afternoon

Do you remember that time when I first held your hands
how you sat close and you leaned on me
Do you remember our first kiss, how you closed your eyes
when I touched your face so tenderly

Do you remember the night when we lit up the fire
how we shared our passion in bare
then you rested so safe in my loving embrace
love took over and conquered the air

Do you remember the time when it’s just you and me
and the world was a thousand steps high
How it felt like a moment, but then seemed like forever
as we painted our dreams in the sky

When the doctors came in saying you can’t recover
my heart shattered in terrible grief
As I look at you now staring blank on a wall
I am filled with intense disbelief

Now if you can’t remember everything that I said
if you don’t even know what’s my name
Let me just take you home please I’m trying my best
to stay strong and composed all the same

Everyday now for several months there were no signs
that your mem’ries will ever return
But I wouldn’t give up on the promise I made
that my love will continuously burn

Until one day I woke up and saw you were humming
a familiar song I wrote before
Then you smiled at me whisp’ring my name in my ear
as my tears slowly started to pour

Then you asked why I’m crying as I stared back at you
my heart’s racing I couldn’t contain
and my tears they keep falling but this time they were there
to erase all my sadness and pain

It’s okay now if you can’t recall everything back
just as long as you’re safe in my care
We will make them again, all the beautiful past
you and me and the love that we share

So tonight I will light up a candle with you
while you look at me holding your hand
Every moment I get, every second my love
I will always be there ’til the end.

I was born of a different breed, the crazy kind who embraces the idea that humans are limitless; the minority who loves to question the standards; the ones who dream the impossible.
