I could not doubt you, For something about you Seemed fair and square. Your love voice was calling, I felt myself falling; I thought I knew you, So gave myself to you There, but now, I've lost my heart somehow. Try to forget, won't you, All you have meant to me And all I've meant to you too. I'm sending back to you The things you sent to me too; Your day dreams, Your gay dreams, Your glad dreams, Your mad dreams. Yet, don't forget, will you That memories haunt me too, Here's what they'd want me to do; To go on just doing my best to forget, So I'll be remembering you. Your glad dreams, Your mad dreams. Yet, don't forget, will you That memories haunt me too, Here's what they want me to do; To go on just doing my best to forget, So I'll remember you.
