I dreamed of an old love affair
(Jimmie Davis - Bonnie Dodd - Charles Mitchell)
" © '56 Peer International, bmi "
Just like old times you were here last night
And gone was my worry and care
When I awoke I knew then that I
Had dreamed of an old love affair
I was alone in the darkness my dear
Many dreams ago you left me there
Sunlight told me you were gone and that I
Had dreamed of an old love affair
I've been so lonely since you have gone
I loved you with all of my heart
Heaven was mine when you smiled last night
And said that we'd make a new start
Life seems so empty without you my dear
If it's sun or rain I just don't care
Sunlight told me you were gone and that I
Had dreamed of an old love affair
