Memories Lyrics

When I wake up to your footsteps
As you get up out of bed
They make a sound that sounds so simple
But dances in my head
A melody so perfect
That it gets me through the day
And the thought of us forever
Is one that won't ever go awayAll I need to know is
Where to stop
Take my hand and show me forever
So never will I ever let you goSo let's hold on together
To this paper and this pen
And write down every letter
To every word we've ever saidAll I need to know is
Where to stop
Take my hand and show me forever
So never will I ever let you goLet's write our story
And let's sing our song
Let's hang our pictures on the wall
All these precious moments
That we carved in stone
Are only memories after allMemories after all
Memories after all, and ohYou gave me hope
But I've got to let go
I've got to let go
It's deep in my soul
Deep in my soul
Now I've got to let go
We wrote our story
And we sang our songs
We hung our pictures on the wallNow those precious moments
That we carved in stone
Are all the memories after all

Shawn Mendes

Shawn Peter Raul Mendes (born August 8, 1998 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian singer-songwriter. Since the release of his self-titled "The Shawn Mendes EP" and his debut single "Life of the Party", he has been gaining mainstream success as a singer-songwriter and touring artist.

Mendes was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and was raised in Pickering, a suburb of the city. He is the son of Karen, a real estate agent, and Manuel Mendes, a businessman. His father is of Portuguese descent (from a family from Lagos), while his mother is English.

He first started posting cover videos on the popular social video app Vine in 2013 and picked up millions of views and followers in a matter of months, becoming well known for his six-second snippets of renditions of many popular songs. Artist manager Andrew Gertler discovered Mendes online in January 2014, bringing him to Island Records where he eventually signed and released his first single "Life of the Party" in June 2014. He is the youngest artist to debut in the top 25 with a debut song on the Billboard Hot 100, making to number 24 for the week ending July 12, 2014 at 15 years, 11 months and 4 days of age.

Prior to his signing, Mendes toured as a member of the MagCon Tour alongside other young artists and social media sensations such as Nash Grier, Cameron Dallas, Jack & Jack, and more. Mendes was also on a nationwide tour with Austin Mahone as an opening act and released his debut major label EP in July, with a debut album due out later in 2014. He won the Teen Choice award in 2014 for Webstar in Music. Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
