Perry Como – When You’re Away lyrics

When you're away dear,
How weary the lonesome hours,
Sunshine seems gray dear,
The fragrance has left the flowers . . .
Ever I hear you in seeming
Whispering soft love words to me
Ah if I knew it were but dreaming
N'er to be . . .
Then, when you're near me
There's n'yot that I strive to do
Save to endear me
More fondly my love to you . . .
Never again let us part dear,
I'd die without you my own,
Hold me again to your heart,
I love you alone . . .
( Never again let us part dear,
I'd die without you my own . . . )
. . . hold me again to your heart,
I love you alone . . .
Love you my own . . .
Love you alone!
Music by Victor Herbert
With lyrics by Henry Blossom , 1914
