It's only a tune remembered
From many years ago,
Yet whenever I hear it play
It sets my heart aglow.

Such precious memories
Come drifting into my mind,
A love I'd thought forgotten;
Emotions I'd left behind.

It's only a simple love song,
Which once we called our own;
The melody that we danced to,
I smile as I now dance alone.

How wonderful is a tune
Bringing memories from the past,
The sweetness of first love,
Love that wasn't meant to last.

It's just a melody,
Yet it brings you back to me
And for a fleeting moment
A clear image of you I see.

Now the song is ending
The memories are fading away,
Maybe somewhere, sometime,
We'll dance again one day.
