I too, remember an R&B song from this time period (1987-1989) and it was sung by a woman but I thought that the ending lyrics were something like...sweet memories, every time you and I surrender.

I too have looked but can't find the song. I heard it only a couple of time on a radio station in Charlotte, NC.

Would love to find the song.

I am looking as well, I know it's a female who sang it (may be in a group), but the first words were



 moments to remember



the last line is:



 sweet sweet sweet memories of you, sweet, sweet, sweet memories of you

The R&B group was known as Klymax and the lyrics went somewhat like this:



Sweet Memories...of the time you and I remember how it could be....sweet memories.





Well, that's all I remember about the lyrics.  I'm looking for the song too.

Cleaning of the dusty shelf I saw your photograph. First time I've seen your face. Since I saw you last. Remebering like yesterday how we use to be. Now I'm wondering where you are and and if you still remember me. Sweet Memories. All the time you and I remember how it would be. Sweet memories all the time you and I remember how it would be.

Cleaning up, I dust a shelf I found a photograph. First time, I've seen your face, since I saw you last. Remembering like yesterday, how it use to be, can't help wondering were you are and if you still remember me...sweet memories of the time you and I remember how it use to be.......

I can't seem to find it either and I don't remember who the group was

That is not the song. I will remember shortly who sang it. The lyrics go something like this.

Cleaning off a dusty shelf

found a photograph.

First time I've seen your face

since I saw you last.

I remember the many walks

good time and bad a like.

And I will cherish with all the heart

these time with all of my heart.

Sweet Memories every time you and remember how it could be.



I think her name was Theresa.

It's such a sweet memory baby of you and me

And how we used to beautifully young

Sometimes I just sit and smile thinking about you for a while

Wondering how you doing now, so sweet



It's such a sweet memory baby of you and me

And how we used to beautifully young

Sometimes I just sit and smile thinking about you for a while

Wondering how you doing now



I heard you were married, had a few babies

Put on on a few pounds, that grown man weight

But heard you looked real good making six figures

Well I could of figured you were always ambitious



You went to college, I did my singing thing

Moving around it's hard to stay in touch

But I've missed you so much over the years

Just wanted to give you a holler say hey, how you doing these days?



It's such a sweet memory baby of you and me

And how we used to beautifully young

Sometimes I just sit and smile thinking about you for a while

Wondering how you doing now



It's such a sweet memory baby of you and me

And how we used to beautifully young

Sometimes I just sit and smile thinking about you for a while

Wondering how you doing now



You were so funny, had me in stitches

And now any man I date must make me laugh

You kissed me in places I thought I was going to hell

Secrets I would never tell my momma then



But you were so sweet didn't take my virginity

But you saw the good in me even talked about marrying me

The future we tried to see we were not suppose to pass

Now everything doesn't last



But I wanted to say hey how you doing these days?

I guess I don't know you no more, I wonder how much you've change

Would we have the same chemistry?

Could you still make me laugh? Could we still have a blast?



Are you happy? Have you've done all thing to wanted to?

One thing I want to do is to see you

And just chill, just talk and reminisce

It would make me so happy if we could do this



It's such a sweet memory baby of you and me

And how we used to beautifully young

Sometimes I just sit and smile thinking about you for a while

Wondering how you doing now



It's such a sweet memory baby of you and me

And how we used to beautifully young

Sometimes I just sit and smile thinking about you for a while

Wondering how you doing now



It's such a sweet memory baby of you and me

And how we used to beautifully young

Sometimes I just sit and smile thinking about you for a while

Wondering how you doing now



It's such a sweet memory baby of you and me

And how we used to beautifully young

Sometimes I just sit and smile thinking about you for a while

Wondering how you doing now



It's such a sweet memory baby of you and me

And how we used to beautifully young

Sometimes I just sit and smile thinking about you for a while

Wondering how you doing now



It's such a sweet memory baby of you and me

And how we used to beautifully young

Sometimes I just sit and smile thinking about you for a while

Wondering how you doing now



How you doing, baby? How you doing?
