Meeting you in the park and talking in the pouring rain(oh what a time we had)Running home in the dark and pretending it was all a game(oh what a time)Those were the days, those were the daysMemories of you have really left a scarAnd all that I can do now is to love you from afar’cos everything was fineThat once upon a timeAsking you if you’d stay, not believing that you might(oh what a time we had)Missing you through the day, dreaming of you through the night(oh what a time)Those were the days, those were the daysThough there’s no denying that you’re nowhere aroundI can’t help myself from looking for your face amongst the crowd’cos everything was fine, that once upon a timeHave to leave the past behind me and get on the right trackThough there’s nothing I can say that will ever bring you backBut everything was fine, that once upon a timeI wish I knew for how much longer this misery will lastCan’t control these feelings, I’m still living in the past’cos everything was fine, that once upon a timeI’ve got to build my life again, try to find somebody newBut I know inside my heart of hearts there’ll be no replacing youBut everything was fine, that once upon a time
