So long ago when our love was new
And the dreams that lovers dream still cast a spell
When we made love we were together more than we knew
And we gazed down deep into the wishing well.

Every day was a sunny day
Rain seems constant now
I can remember times when your love and affection
Turned my world around.

We separate like rain in a storm
And the wind blows all our words of love away
When we first met you were so loving, you were so warm
Now we meet like strangers on a lost highway.

Our love story was meant to be
All those days gone down
I can remember times when your love and affection
Turned my world around.

In deep blue, old and new
Distant voices call to you
Alchemy, mercury
Now you're free, and you can be who you want to be
I know that you will grow now we're apart
Talk to me when you're all at sea
I will keep songs for you here in my heart.

So long ago when our love was new
And the dreams that lovers dream still cast a spell
When we made love we were together more than we knew
And we gazed down deep into the wishing well.

Every day was a sunny day
Rain seems constant now
I can remember times when your love and affection
Turned my world around.
