From: Material - One Down

Whitney Houston recorded “Memories,” her first lead solo, as a guest vocalist on the album One Down by Material.


I know, I cannot leave this place, full of memories
Things like the way they knew us, all over town
We used to walk the streets together
We could be seen
Past shops where people knew us
Yeah, people knew

I’ve got to choose between tomorrow and yesterday
Can’t stop to think about my life, here today

Memories can hang you up and haunt you
All your life, you know
Get so you cannot stay
And yet cannot go

Hey, I could find out where you’ve gone today
I feel so unhappy
Streets seem so empty now
I want you, I want you with me
Maybe I’ll find someone to get you
Off my mind
Take me away from here and leave it all behind
