Once upon a time, a girl with moonlight in her eyes Put her hand in mine and said she loved me so But that was once upon a time, very long ago Once upon a hill, we sat beneath a willow tree Counting all the stars and waiting for the dawn But that was once upon a time, now the tree is gone How the breeze ruffled through her hair How we always laughed as though tomorrow wasn’t there We were young and didn’t have a care Where did it go Once upon a time, the world was sweeter than we knew Everything was ours, how happy we were then But, somehow, once upon a time never comes again Once upon a time, it seemed the world was painted gold And there was a man and, oh, I loved him so The world was beautiful to see, very long ago On a night like this, we saw the rising of the Moon All the silver stars, like necklaces were strung We spoke of such important things, we were very young Open hearts, nothing to conceal Every little thought was so exciting to reveal All our dreams we knew would soon be real Where did they go Once upon a time, the world was sweeter than we knew Everything was ours, how happy we were then But, somehow, once upon a time never comes again (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2017)
