Tom Road

Tom Road – Memories

I would like to introduce you to the latest version of this song. 

The original idea came up in 2011 with Nuno Esperto presenting an instrumental based on an idea of mine. I wanted a melody reminiscent of the nostalgia of songs from the past. With the instrument in hand, I started writing the lyrics.

 

The initial name I chose was “Memories of that summer”. In this song I portray those passions that usually arise in the summer. Some of these passions tend to leave us stunned. It may seem impossible to find a better passion than that one, and sometimes that one is really the best one that has ever happened to us. Some result in marriage.

The original English lyrics needed to be grammatically corrected and given a new vocalization. This was done in 2021 with the help of Scobie Rider.

In 2023, this song was included in a mixing and mastering course project. On this occasion, the drums, created originally in a vst instrument, were replaced by a studio recording by Andrés Malta. The hands and support of João André helps to obtain a professional result.

Hope you like it!

Here is the Lyric:

Verse 1
We had the hottest summer, then I lost you
I wander round with a broken heart
Every day feeling like a zombie
Living my life while I fall apart
Everybody has their cross to bear
know now you’re too scared to care
life hurts, we all know that for sure.
Got my heart!
You don’t need to search no more!
Chorus
I can’t forget how we were lovers
I can’t forget I lost my heart (ooh ooh)
I never dreamed that I’d discover
That after summer we’d always be apart!
Verse 2
It’s hard to explain what you have done to me
You’re everything I dreamed you would be
Can’t forget the love-light in your eyes
How could I guess, you told me sweet lies
Love hurts no-one said it lasts forever
You swore everything would get better
My life is hell and I just can’t break free
Chorus
I can’t forget how we were lovers
I can’t forget I lost my heart (oooh ooh)
I never dreamed that I’d discover
That after summer we’d always be apart!
Solo Guitar
Chorus
I can’t forget how we were lovers
I can’t forget I lost my heart (oooh ooh)
I never dreamed that I’d discover
That after summer we’d always be apart!
Chorus
I can’t forget how we were lovers
I can’t forget I lost my heart (oooh ooh)
I never dreamed that I’d discover
That after summer we’d always be apart!
