I NEVER CAN FORGET YOU.

We met as strangers, parted friends, where balmy breezes kissed the flowers.
And, oh, it seemed two happier hearts ne'er formed a friendship such as ours;
And it has almost warmed to love, the ties of pleasure had to sever.
But, ah, one thought will live with me, I never can forget you, never.
No matter where in life I roam, there's naught on earth but death can sever
The lies that made us friends for life, I never can forget you, never.
Though I should wander far away and live for years in foreign places.
Ah, do not think that-I'll forget the fairest, sweetest of all faces;
No! no! if I should bid farewell to home, to you and friends forever.
And never see your face again, I never can forget you, never.--Chorus.
I never can forget your face, your eyes so full of beauty beaming.
Your gentle voice so soft and sweet, I think of you awake or dreaming;
To love you and to think of you through life shall be my fond endeavor.
And though we may not meet again, I'll not forget you, never.- Chorus.
