The Tender Love that Never Dies.
Copyright, 1890, by Isaiah M. Rosenfeld.
Words by F. J. M. Music by Isaiah M. Rosenfeld.
The heart can never love but once, we're told that true love never dies.
That every vow of true devotion is recorded in the thief;
The fates of love thrown once ajar, aid heart to heart, as star to star,
Will cling though souls divided are, for true love it never dies,
Will cling though souls divided are, for true love it never dies.
The heart can never love but once, though fate may cruelly divide,
Though years may age divided hearts, true love it. cannot hide';
The moon will light with silver beam an angel face in every dream,
From out the darkest hours will gleam, for fond love it never dies,
From out the darkest hours will gleam the tender love that never dies.
The heart can never love but once-ah, me. alaŽ! deluded one,
Try as thou wilt to crush the pain, 'twill lust till life is done;
A final day will come by-and-by, then shall thy longing heart outcry
For one whose face is ever nigh, that love can never die.
For one whose face is ever nigh, for tender love can never die.
