SHADOWS WILL FADE AWAY
(J. Keirn Brennan / Bert Rule, 1919)
When you came dear you bro't the sunshine in your smile;
Since you left me
Life is only shadows
All the while.
Oh, how wondrous was any weather
Where we strayed;
Then the sunshine of a life together
Seemed to fade.
Shadows that come after all those days of laughter,
Follow everywhere I stray;
In the summery sunlight,
Or the wintery midnight,
There's nothing seems right,
Since you wandered away.
Who knows when we'll meet, dear?
Shadows at my feet, dear,
Whisper you'll return some day.
When you will take me,
From dreams awake me,
Then all the shadows will fade away.
