Abstract

VERSE 1
Once we were sweethearts,
Not so long ago,
Then I loved you so,
But you didn’t know;
You couldn’t learn to love me,
You’re not to blame,
But I like you just the same;

CHORUS
If we can’t be the same old sweethearts,
Then we’ll just be the same old friends,
For I want someone like you,
Just to tell my troubles to,
My happiness on you it all depends;
For I’ve know you too long to forget you,
And my old dream of love never ends,
Tho’ I know you can’t be mine,
We will meet from time to time,
And we’ll just be the same old friends.
If we friends.

VERSE 2
You said you loved me,
Not so long ago,
But you didn’t know,
Sweethearts come and go;
Some day you’ll love another,
And later on,
You may want me, when he’s gone;

CHORUS
