[Verse 1]
When other lips and other hearts
Their tales of love shall tell,
In language whose excess imparts
The pow’r they feel so well,
There may perhaps in such a scene
Some recollection be.
Of days that have as happy been,
And you’ll remember me.
And you’ll remember, you’ll remember me.

[Verse 2]
When coldness of deceit shall slight
The beauty now they prize,
And deem it but a faded light
Which beams within your eyes,
When hollow hearts shall wear a mask
‘Twill break your own to see,
In such a moment I but ask
That you’ll remember me
That you’ll remember, you’ll remember me.
