David Potts-Dupre: Music

Do You Remember, Livy

(David Potts-Dupre)
Again, this grew out of my playing with drop D tunings. Many of my songs directly reflect my life and others are more indirect reflections. This is both. The initial verses of ten thousand kisses, the marriage vows and the holding of a child (daughters for me), clearly grew out of my life. The portion of the verses dealing with being out of touch and losing track of the relationship happens to every couple in a long marriage at times, but, while life and problems can interfere, I’ve never forgotten what we mean to each other.
Do You Remember, Livy David Potts-Dupre 12/10

Can you remember, Livy, the day when we first kissed
I close my eyes and still taste your lips
Since then we’ve kissed ten thousand times, and each of them was meant
They mark our love and the years we have spent
Now I can’t help but feel, that we’ve lost sight of what’s real

Can you remember, Livy, the day I made my vow
I meant it then and I still mean it now
Through good and bad we said back then, and we’ve had some of each
But when the days are bad the love’s not out of reach
Just know that I’ll be there. and I will know that you care

I don’t want to argue, Livy, I don’t want to fight
I just want to hold you through the night
I don’t want to argue, Livy, I don’t want to fight
I just want to hold you through the night

Can you remember, Livy, the day we held our son
We felt as though our lives had just begun
It’s been a joy to watch you, Livy, through all these many years
Most with laughter, a few with tears
So when the days turn bad, remember what we have

I don’t want to argue, Livy, I don’t want to fight
I just want to hold you through the night
I don’t want to argue, Livy, I don’t want to fight
I just want to hold you through the night
I just want to hold you through the night
