Since you've gone away one thing is clear to me
You were dearer than dear to me from the moment you came
Evenings by your side I learned to love the night
But the loveliness of the night is no longer the same

When day is done and shadows fall, I dream of you
When day is done I think of all the joys we knew
That yearnin', returnin' to hold you in my arms
Won't go love, I know love, without you night has lost its charm

When day is done and grass is wet with twilight's dew
My lonely heart is sinkin' with the sun
Although I miss your tender kiss the whole day through
I miss you most of all when day is done
When day is done
