[Chorus:]
There will be laughter even after you're gone
I'll find reasons to face that empty dawn
'Cause I've memorized each line in your face
And not even death can ever erase the story they tell to me

I'll miss you, oh how I'll miss you
I'll dream of you and I'll cry a million tears
But the sorrow will pass and the one thing that will last
Is the love that you've given to me

[Chorus]
There will be laughter even after you're gone
I'll find reason and I'll face that empty dawn
'Cause I've memorized each line in your face
And not even death could ever erase the story they tell to me
