SUNSET GLOW FADES IN THE WEST, NIGHT O'ER THE VALLEY IS CREEPING! BIRDS CUDDLE DOWN IN THEIR NEST, SOON ALL THE WORLD WILL BE SLEEPING, AND NOW IS THE HOUR WHEN WE MUST SAY GOODBYE, SOON YOU'LL BE SAILING FAR ACROSS THE SEA, WHILE YOU'RE AWAY, O, THEN REMEMBER ME, WHEN YOU RETURN, YOU'LL FIND ME WAITING HERE, TRUE LOVERS OFTEN MUST PART, KISS ME, THEN LEAVE ME TO SORROW! HERE LOVE, I GIVE YOU MY HEART, YOU WILL RETURN SOME GLAD MORROW, BUT NOW IS THE HOUR WHEN WE MUST SAY GOODBYE, SOON YOU'LL BE SAILING FAR ACROSS THE SEA, WHILE YOU'RE AWAY, O, THEN REMEMBER ME, WHEN YOU RETURN, YOU'LL FIND ME WAITING HERE. ***** as rec by Vera Lynn 1964 Now is the hour when we must say goodbye; Soon you'll be sailing far across the sea. While you're away, oh please remember me, When you return, you'll find me waiting here. I'll dream of you if you will dream of me, Each hour I'll miss you, here across the sea. It's not goodbye, it's just a sweet adieu, Some day I'll sail across the sea to you. While you're away, oh please remember me, When you return, you'll find me waiting here.
