Romantic nights of song and dance
Still live within my heart
And when I recall our ecstasy
Beautiful memories start.
In love, we waltzed beneath the moon
How foolish! I cannot deny...
Hand in hand and cheek to cheek
We left the world behind.
Such joy will never come again
For we are young no more.
And in golden dreams I clearly see
The way we were before.
The places where we used to go
Have crumbled now with time,
Gone has the old seat by the mill
And church bells never chime.
But love goes back a long long way
Maturing with the years like wine
And hand in hand and side by side
We still leave the world behind.
