Words and Music by James H. Cullen.

Once more we speak, 'tis long since we were parted
By false friends, who said my love was untrue,
And made my life a burthen in its splendor,
Long years had passed before his faults he knew.
Whene'er we'd meet, like strangers we would pass,
The pain was sharp and very hard to bear;
And while he thought me happy in my splendor,
I vain would meet with misery and despair!

Once more we speak, no more will idle fancy
Bring bitter tears to dim his manly eye;
And side by side we'll battle life together,
Once more we speak, so let the past go by.

In lonely hours without a friend to cheer me,
My mind would wander back to her again;
And in my dream I Ofttimes see her near me,
With happy less look she would at me gaze.
But after years at last there came a change,
The link was found, the mystery cleared away;
In words of kindness all was soon forgotten,
When jealousy no longer held its sway.-Chorus.
