Oh sometimes I go walking
Through fields where we walked
Long ago in the sweet used to be
And the flowers still grow
But they don't smell as sweet
As they did when you picked them for me

And when I think of you
And the love we once knew
How I wish we could go back in time
Do you ever think back on old memories like that
Or do I ever cross your mind

Do you ever wake up lonely
In the middle of the night
Because you miss me
Do you darling
Oh and do your memories ever take you
Back into another place and time
And do you ever miss the feelings
And the love we shared when you were with me
Tell me darling
Or do I ever cross your mind

Oh how often I wish
That again I could kiss
Your sweet lips like I did long ago
And how often I long
For those two loving arms
That once held me so gentle and close

And when I think of you
And the love we once knew
How I wish we could go back in time
Do you ever recall these old memories at all
Or do I ever cross your mind
Do I ever cross your mind
Tell me darling
Do I ever cross your mind
