WHERE ARE THE SONGS WE SUNG? fr "Operette" 1938 musical Noel Coward 1937 as recorded by Peggy Wood March 25th 1938 Once in a lifetime when we are very, very young And love comes out to greet us for the first time, We open wide our arms and say to him, "This is the only and the last time That young surrender!". We can remember when some little tune Recalls our hearts to vanished splendour Like organ music in a sunny street, So sweetly flat, so sadly tender. And so when love again rides by, We sometimes sigh; Where are the songs we sung When love in our hearts was young? Where, in the limbo of our passing years, Lie all our hopes and dreams and fears? Where have they gone, words that rang so true When love in our hearts was new? Where, in the shadows that we have to pass among, Lie those songs that once we sung? Where are the songs we sung When love in our hearts was young? Can you remember all the foolish things we said, The plans we planned, the tears we shed? Where is it now, that enchanted dawn When love in our hearts was young? Where, in the shadows that we have to pass among, Lie those songs that once we sung?
