VERSE 01: Out of the dear long ago,/I hear a song sweet and low/Drifting, it seems, out of the dreams,/Dreams that we used to know, dear.
CHORUS: Just a broken hearted melody/Just a song that ends with a sigh/Like the sweet refrain you sang to me/On that night we said goodbye,/Dear,/Playing on the strings of memory/Singing of the days that used to be/Saying, dear, I want you near to hear me;/Broken hearted melody.
VERSE 02: Soft is the nightingale’s call,/Sweet are the rose leaves that fall/But love’s old song drifting along,/Seems to me best of all, dear.
