This exquisite composition was premiered by a mass choir of youth. Listen to the premiere recording.
What, my friend, will I remember
when I’m old then older yet?
What, my friend, will I remember?
What, my friend, will I forget?
A rained-out birthday picnic,
my first straight-A report card,
the fate of Harry Potter.
Will I remember being young?
Remember? Remember how I look?
How you look?
Remember how we look right now?
What, my friend, will you remember,
When you’re old and full of years?
Will you remember here and now?
Recall how once we’d sung this song.
A song about us when we were young.
Will you remember standing tall?
Will I remember you?
The time that lies ahead of us
is greater than the time that’s gone.
Let’s meet again and sing this song
when the opposite is true.
What ever else we may forget,
remember this – remember now.
Sing with no regrets.
Sing with me.
