VERSE 01: Back to the olden golden days,/ Where we met in an old fashioned lane./ In the glad days of June,/ With the whole world atune,/ I'd like to be there once again.
CHORUS: After the roses have faded away,/ After their splendor has gone,/ After a night filled with mocking joy,/ After the silent dawn./ After the birds fly away to the south,/ With their song of a summer's day,/ Wherever you are,/ You're my guiding star,/ When the roses have faded away.
VERSE 02: Safe in the hav'n of heart's desire,/ And the story of love to unfold./ Life would be worth the while,/ With the joy of your smile,/ To kiss you again as of old.
