Being forreign and all.... Im having great problems understanding the lyrics in Jim Croses song Time in a bottle. The third verse.... here:

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

Im asking the meaning of the lyrics.

Memory of how they were answered by you are dreams that never came through?

its pretty self explainitory

you have a box with all your dreams(wishes)in it

the box is empty because the other person answered all the dreams (wishes) you have

its a good thing to have all your dreams and wishes answered

He remembers how the wishes and dreams were answered and those memories of how the wishes were answered are all that's left in the box where the wishes use to be.

If I had a cart full of groceries and beef that would never be stewed, the cart would be empty except for the memory of how it was all cooked by you.

its about how the other person fulfilled all your dreams... they are memories of how wants became reality. How a special person gave you everything you wanted.

so the memory is not of having wishes its the memory of how they became reality
