I've Heard That Song Before

Artist: Harry James, with vocal by Helen Forrest
Sung by Frank Sinatra in the movie "Youth on Parade"
Charted at # 1 for 13 weeks in 1943
Words by Sammy Cahn and Music by Jule Styne

It seems to me I've heard that song before
It's from an old familiar score
I know it well, that melody
It's funny how a theme recalls a favorite dream
A dream that brought you so close to me

I know each word because I've heard that song before
The lyrics said "Forever more"
Forever more's a memory
Please have them play it again
And I'll remember just when
I heard that lovely song before

    A love song ? a love gone wrong; perhaps a WW11 soldier got a dear john letter and the soldier is saying "oh yes, I've heard that song before.
    I thought our love was forevermore but our love is just a memory"
    Harry James was an icon during the war, his instrumentals were fabulous and his songs the best to describe what our soldiers were feeling.
