Going back to the place where memories scream
Its been years since I roamed these halls
Yet I'm greeted with smiles so bright
Memories scream out from the walls

Tears, laughter and growing of balls
this is the place I found my sight
Its been years since I roamed these halls

I smell the smells of my great falls
the taste of rising to great heights
Memories scream out from the walls

In the distance I hear the calls
of joy, sympathy and delight
Its been years since I roamed these halls

Despite itself, here the heart crawls
the place I gained the most incite
Memories scream out from the walls

Thinking back time here only drawls
Now in my dreams I see the light
Its been years since I roamed these halls

Right before me my mind recalls
Now my true love comes to light
Its been years since I roamed these halls
Memories scream out from the walls
