So Many Memories Kept In Jars

by Thomas K. Hunt

So many memories, not any given one
Take flight and make it to the sun
Some return while others stay where they are
Some are gone forever; yes, they've gone too far


So many memories kept in jars
Just remove the lids, and they'll shoot for the stars
They'll find out when they get there if they've gone too far
So many memories kept in jars


You hope the bad ones always crash and burn
While the good ones seem happy to return
Some memories do fade away
Their ashes are scattered across the Milky Way
Yet, live forever in our hearts every day


So many memories kept in jars
Remove the lids, and they'll shoot for the stars
They'll find out when they get there if they've gone too far
So many memories kept in jars


Some memories last forever, and some just fade away
I'm filling up my jars with more memories every day
They're well preserved and airtight in their jars all of the time
Go ahead, open one up and watch them start to shine


So many memories kept in jars
Just remove the lids, and they'll shoot for the stars
They'll find out when they get there if they've gone too far
So many memories kept in jars


They're easy to catch and easy to jar
But when that lid comes off, they shoot for the stars
Sitting here waiting for them to return
I wonder if they have to wait their turn


My jars are filled to the brim
There are so many I lost count of them
When a lid is cracked, a memory is on its way
Sit tight; the good ones come back to stay


So many memories kept in jars
Just remove one lid, and they'll shoot for the stars
They'll find out when they get there if they've gone too far
So many memories kept in jars


The bad ones should crash and burn
The good ones bring nothing but joy when they return
So many memories just kiss the sun
They all return; they're the only ones


You don't need a jar
That's just how I roll
Mine shoot for the stars
The good ones return and lighten up my soul


So many memories kept in jars
Just remove the lids, and they'll shoot for the stars
They'll find out when they get there if they've gone too far
So many memories kept in jars


Even on a cloudy day, memories shine through and light the way
My mind's eye is open, and it's watching every one
I laugh out loud, remembering the innocence and fun
I'm still creating them; I'm not D.U.N. done


So many memories kept in jars
Just remove the lids, and they'll shoot for the stars
Some may return If they haven't gone too far
So many memories kept in jars
