[Verse 1] Out in the still summers evening Into my heart comes
a feeling of love that’s true and undying;
For you, sweetheart, I am sighing.
Down by the stream, where we wander’d
Under the pale moonlight beaming,
There’s where I linger and dream of you Darling Dreaming.
Dreaming, of you sweetheart I am dreaming, Dreaming of days, when you loved me best
Dreaming of hours that have gone to rest,
Love’s own sweet message I’m bringing,
Years have not changed the old love still remains, Dreaming.
Years have gone by, still I love you
Tho’ there’s another who won you out of my life you have drifted;
Yet in my heart
You still linger.
Dreaming or walking I see you,
I can forgive, not forget you I
n life and death
I’ll await your return while
