COME TO MY HEART ONCE AGAIN

Words by Arthur Sinclair. Music by Count de Gloria.
Why do you treat me so coldly, once I was dear to your heart;
Give me one glance of affection, just for a word must we part?
Friends have we been since our childhood, friends we should ever remain,
Am I no longer your dear one? come to my heart once again.
Clasp hands once more, smile as of yore!
Life without thee would be pain;
Am I no longer your dear one?
Come to my heart once again.
Can you forget ev'ry gladness? tell me your heart is the same:
You are the star o'er my pathway, mine ad the sorrow and blame;
All would be lonely without you, wherefore the frown on your brow?
Am I no longer your loved one? true is my heart to you now.- Chorus.
Tell me that all is forgiven, whisper the past you forget,
Let us be friends in the future, fond us the days we first met;
Smile on the one who adores you, turn into joy ev'ry pain,
Am I no longer your loved one? come to my heart once again.- Chorus.
