“I Will Remember” performed by Toto

I was born in the land of the sun
And the tall green grass
And I don’t understand
How all this has come to pass
How we’ve come to surround ourselves
In a sea of thieves
In a land without learning
Only the fools believe

I went driving last night
On a dark canyon road
Had the sky to myself
But I wasn’t alone
Had the pain of my lifetime
For my company
How did it end up like this
For you and me

When love breaks the promise
The heart has to keep
It leaves only truth here to find
When the spirit is crushed
And the hurt is so deep
Between you and I

Even when love has come and gone
And our hearts have moved along
I will remember
There was a time we had the trust
And that always was enough
I will remember
I will remember you

As I open my eyes to one more day
The wind burns my face
As it whispers your name
As it’s pulling me forward
It tears me free
And the only thing left
Is the tears for you and me

‘Cause when love breaks the promise
The heart has to keep
It leaves only truth here to find
When the spirit is crushed
And the hurt is so deep
Between you and I

Even when love has come and gone
And our hearts have moved along
I will remember
There was a time we had the trust
And that always was enough
I will remember

I will remember you

If you are searching for a way to make a funeral service more memorable to the attendees, you might want to play or have someone sing the song “I Will Remember” by Toto. This is actually a love song that expresses the despair of someone who can’t lose the memory of his or her beloved even after the passing of time. Toto says: “Even when love has come and gone and our hearts have moved along, I will remember.” As such, the words that Toto sung could perfectly fit the sentiments of those whose loved one has passed away.

 

You will be hard put to shake away the memories of your loved one even after many years that he or she has been gone. And Toto appears to have captured this pathos with the way he charged the lyrics with his strong emotions. You won’t be able to miss his great sense of loss as he delivers the words of the song. This song was written by Steve Lukather and Stan Lynch and was part of the “Tambu” album of Toto. It rose to popularity among music fans and even reached number 64 in the UK Singles Chart.
