Remnants
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

And now I bring to you the remnants of a lifetime
The remnants of a lifetime
The fragments
The leftovers
The crumbs from the table
The leavings and remains
Of a time gone by

Songs of promise
Never finished
Molding away in old discolored notebooks
Once upon a time …
Once upon a time

Yeah once upon a time
They clamored for refinement
Some polish and revisions
My much-forgotten verses
And half-baked ideas
They cried, “Don’t leave me now!
Left behind
Never to find my way
Lost in the pages
Good for nothing
Fading away
And left alone to die”

So have a little listen to the remnants of my mind
Have a little listen to the remnants of a lifetime

Interlude

Yes these were songs and scraps of songs
That never found a home
Words that never made enough sense
Melodies left unattended
Until one day
I dreamt of resurrection
I could not leave my friends behind
And have them fade away
Fade away
Fade away
Fade away

So I had a little listen to the remnants of my mind
I had a little listen to the remnants of a lifetime

And so they rose on up from the ashes of a lifetime
These scraps and notes on napkins
Those scribbles on margins
Never remembered
Those musings of the mind
And the tunes left behind

So have a little listen to the remnants of my mind
Have a little listen to the remnants of a lifetime
Please enjoy my remnants
Please applaud their renaissance
Come celebrate their reincarnation
It’s not often that we all get a second chance
So grab on to the moment
Cuz It’s never too late to be born again

Please enjoy my remnants
Please applaud their renaissance
Come celebrate their reincarnation
It’s not often that we all get a second chance
So grab on to the moment
Cuz It’s never too late to be born again

III (Descant)
Have a little listen to the remnants of my mind
Have a little listen to my mind
Have a little listen to the remnants
Cuz It’s never too late to be born again

IV (Descant)
Have a little listen to the remnants of my mind
Have a little listen to my mind
Have a little listen to the moments
Cuz It’s never too late to be born again

IV (Jenny Adds)
Listen up people
To the Remnants
Have a little listen
Whoa!
It’s never too late
It’s never too late
It’s never too late

V (Descant)
Have a little listen to the remnants of my mind
Have a little listen to my mind
Have a little listen to the moments
Cuz It’s never too late to be born again
