LITTLE REMINDERS
Written by DOUGLAS & TUCKER / Copyright 1987 YUMMY POP TUNES (ASCAP)


MORNINGS FIND YOU WAKING
LISTENING TO HER FAVORITE SONG
WHICH NEVER SEEMS TO HELP
IT ONLY SPEEDS THE PAIN ALONG
THEN YOU GET OUT OF YOUR BED
STARE AT THE PILLOWS LONG AND HARD
WASN'T LONG AGO
THAT HAPPINESS CRUMBLED APART

HER FALLEN HAIR UPON YOUR PILLOW
GREW IN A BETTER TIME
THESE ARE SOME OF THE LITTLE REMINDERS
OF THE WORLD SHE LEFT BEHIND

MIDDAY FINDS YOU WALKING
DOWN BY THE OCEANSIDE
WHERE MEMORIES OF LONG LOST LOVE
FLOW INWARD WITH THE TIDE
USED TO SPEND TIME WITH HER
CLOSE BY THE OCEAN BLUE
WHERE NOTHING NOW BUT PHANTOMS COME
TO SPEND THEIR MIDDAY TIME WITH YOU

HER FOOTSTEPS FORMED UPON THE OCEAN SANDS
WERE MADE IN A BETTER TIME
THESE ARE SOME OF THE LITTLE REMINDERS
OF THE WORLD SHE LEFT BEHIND

STILL IMPRISONED TO YOUR LIFE BEFORE
WHEN YOU LOOKED AHEAD
TO WHAT TOMORROW HAD IN STORE
AND WHEN YOU THINK
YOUR SENTENCE DONE
HERE COMES THOSE LITTLE REMINDERS
ONE BY ONE BY ONE BY ONE BY ONE

EVENINGS FIND YOU DYING
WHILE YOU'RE IN YOUR LIVING ROOM
CHOKING ON THE FRAGRANCE
CREATED BY HER SWEET PERFUME
STILL THE CANDLELABRA BURNS
BUT IT'S YOUR HEART THAT MELTS
IF ONLY SHE COULD KNOW
WHAT KIND OF LOVE YOU MUST HAVE FELT

AND THE DEAD FLOWER ON THE MANTLEPIECE
BLOSSOMED IN A BETTER TIME
THESE ARE SOME OF THE LITTLE REMINDERS
OF THE WORLD SHE LEFT BEHIND
AND YOU GET REAL SCARED
WHEN THE TELEPHONE RINGS
CAUSE YOU HOPE THAT
SHE'S ON THE LINE
BUT ALL THAT'S THERE ARE THE LITTLE REMINDERS
OF THE WORLD SHE LEFT BEHIND
