Let Me Be Your Sweetheart Once Again
Copyright, 1894, by Erny Hultgren.
Words and Music by Erny Hultgren.
As boy and girl together, in childhood's golden hours.
Two happy little sweet hearts, we played amid the flowers;
You told me that you loved me, I gave you all my heart,
But since then long years have sped and we drifted far apart.
Let me be your sweetheart once again, let me be your sweetheart once again;
Leave me not forsaken, let old love awaken-be my little sweetheart once again.
As-loving youth and maiden, we still walked hand in hand;
Each other loving, trusting, the happiest in the land,
Until the night we quarreled-you nearly broke my heart;
In auger, darling, you left me, we drifted far apart.- Chorus.
Can you have quite forgotten the love that used to be?
When I was all you lived for-you, all the world to me?
My arms are open, darling, to take you to my heart,
Then come, love, all is forgiven-we never more shall part- Chorus.
