ALL I CAN BE (IS A SWEET MEMORY) (Harlan Howard (m & l) ) As sung by Collin Raye < All I Can Be > 1990 All I can be is a sweet memory That drifts through your mind from time from time I can never be more than a knock on your door Just a shadow that's gone with the sunshine. For you know I'm not free And I never can be And you're bound to get restless in time All I can be is a sweet memory That drifts through your mind. Tonight I'll share the silence here While lyin' here with you The sands of time have trickled down Just a precious few. You're young and so beautiful And I'm so glad I'm here But the ending is painfully clear. All I can be is a sweet memory Of someone you had to leave behind Who loves you and needs you Never could give you A ring for your finger so fine. So tonight we'll just borrow each other Tomorrow we'll find we've run out of time And all I can be is a sweet memory That drifts through your mind For you know I'm not free And I never can be And you're bound to get restless in time And all I can be is a sweet memory That drifts through your mind. (bridge) For you know I'm not free And I never can be And you're bound to get restless in time All I can be is a sweet memory That drifts through your mind. All I can be is a sweet memory That drifts through your mind. Notes: Collin Raye is an American singer and bass guitarist from Arkansas. Although he is known primarily for his country pop work, often his songs also reflect social issues and many recognize him for this. Such topics have included child abuse, alcoholism, religion, wars, and death. Interestingly, two of his best known songs (emotional offerings as they are) are often requested for weddings and funerals, the former perhaps being IN THIS LIFE 1992 and the latter LOVE, ME 1991.
