I Want To Remember This

insert song in movie Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (and Don’t Come Back!)

I want to remember this when I am far away
I want to keep all the special feelings of today

There’s a new song upon the breeze
The sky’s a sparkling blue
Tell me please, is this a dream come true?

I want to keep every sound, every vision that I see
How else can I know that this really happened to me?

I want to remember this when the excitement’s gone
I want to make sure this mood keeps going on and on

Cause now I don’t have to pretend
The sun is finally coming out
And round the bend I’ll see what life’s about
