Words by W. C. Rubey. Music by A D. Caprio.

Back to a home of splendor, safe from the sea of strife,
Thinking of one so tender, who'd promised to be my wife;
And in the silent gloaming, oft have I pictured the past,
In thoughts that were brightest of her I loved in visions
too bright to last.
The parting words were spoken, she vowed that she'd be true.
I've cherished her last token, her fond words of adieu;
Oh, how my heart was yearning, recalling her words again,
But when I saw her her love had changed, my hoping had been
in vain.

Can you so soon forget, why not be faithful to me?
Where'er I've chanced to roam, I have been constant to thee;
Blighted lives, broken hearts, have you no word of regret?
Hopes that were bright like shadows have passed, tell me,
how can I forget?

Life is a dream of sadness since you have gone away,
Without one spark of gladness, I'm left on the lone highway;
No one to guide my footsteps, no one to care should I fall,
I sit and I ponder in silent thought, on love I would fain recall.
Oh. tell me what has changed you. your love I thought sincere.
Did you but know the anguish, you've wrecked a heart so dear:
I cannot think you faithless, oh, why should you cause me pain?
One word from your lips will convince me, and prove I've not
loved in vain. -Chorus.
