I'll Remember You
I arranged Kui Lee’s I’ll Remember You for solo guitar in 2003, and recorded this performance on September 14, 2008. I was trying to learn songs that would play at Hawaiian weddings, since Peggy and I were picking up small money marrying people on the beach.
The words are a trifle mournful, but it is a lovely instrumental piece, sweet as a cinnamon bun. Anyway, it is not a good idea for me to sing at weddings, since I do not wish to alarm the guests. The guitar has to stand alone, and I’ll Remember You can do that.
I’ll Remember You by Kui Lee
I’ll remember you
Long after this endless summer is gone
I’ll be lonely, oh so lonely
Living only to remember you
I’ll remember too
Your voice as soft as a warm summer breeze
Your sweet laughter mornings after
Ever after I’ll remember you
To your arms some day I’ll return to stay
’til then I will remember too
Every bright star we made wishes upon
Love me always, promise always
Oooh, you’ll remember too –
I’ll remember you.
