PORTOFINO
WRITERS MARK SPIRO, JACK WHITE


Long ago I used to know where love was found, A place in the sun
Long before this heart of mine had broken down You were the one
But now you're a lonely memory My heartache will never end
Though all of those nights are far away I wish I were with you again. Portofino I still remember the sun in your hair
Portofino mariachi music that danced in the air
Portofino I want you back in my arms
'Cause every time I close my eyes I'm holding you in the dark
In Portofino where you broke my heart.
I think of your face and still it can take my breath away After so long
And though I'll be lonely living for only yesterday I'll get along
Though now you're a faded memory My heartache will never end
This unforgotten melody keeps playing over and over again
Portofino I still remember the sun in your hair
Portofino mariachi music that danced in the air
Portofino I want you back in my arms
'Cause every time I close my eyes I'm holding you in the dark
In Portofino where you broke my heart
In Portofino where you broke my heart.
