American Old Time Song Lyrics: 23 When Other Friends Are Round Me
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 23
When Other Friends Are Round Me.
When other friends are round thee,
And other hearts are thine,
When other days have crowned thee
More fresh and green that mine;
Then think how sad and lonely,
This wretched heart must be,
Which while it beats-beats only,
Beloved one, for thee.
Yet do not think I doubt thee,
I know thy truth remains,
I would not live without thee
For all the world contains;
Thou art the star that guides me
Along life's troubled sea,
Whatever fate betides me,
This heart still turns to thee.
