Words by J. Manning Roberts. Music by Loren Bragden.

Down by the sea when the sun is low
I stand and dream of the long ago;
The waves rush on with their ceaseless roar
To break and foam on the rocky shore;
And ships sail by on their seaward flight,
Now here, now gone in the fading light;
I think of a love that I let drift by.
On the ocean of time, 'neath a rosy sky.
But skies are dark and I'm alone.
With nothing to cheer but the waves wierd moan,
And I sit and gaze on the rolling sea.
And wish for the days that are gone from me.

The past is but a memory, the present sad and lone,
The future's bleak and dreary, and my heart is like a stone,
As I think of things that might be, of the one I threw aside.
Of the fair face that always haunts me, of the love that has never died.
