When love was young we tho’t all our dreams came true,
Your sweet caress brought happiness;
one day we quarreled just like true lovers do,
A tear, a sigh, a last good bye.
Dearie, come let’s forgive all our heartaches,
Dearie, come let’s forget all the pain;
Brush the tears from your eye, let the dark clouds roll by,
For the sunshine will follow the rain.
Like a flow’r you have grown, dear,
Just a part of my heart to remain;
With your sweet tender charms nestle close in my arms,
Come and let us be sweethearts again.
Both night and day while I’ve been away from you,
My heart would ache and nearly break;
In dreams I hear your voice and your promise true,
Let’s live once more those days of yore.
