Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 61
DO YOU REMEMBER?
Copyright, 1898, by Carl Fisher.
Words and Music by Richard Stahl.
Do you remember? 'tis not long ago,
When first you said "I love you so."
Can time have changed the vows we then made,
Do you remember, or is your love dead?
in years gone by many a sigh
Has pierced my heart, all for thee.
Why then break now that sacred vow,
Doest thou no longer love me?
Why must I roam through life alone
without thee, my darling one.
Have you forgotten your promise? Am I no longer thine own?
Let me Just once more embrace thee, come to the heart that is lone;
Ever and always I'll love thee, ofttimes. you know, I have said, [dead?
One fond kiss was then your answer, do you remember? or is your love
Life seems so dreary, so bitter and cold,
Without one smile, like those of old.
Soon all be o'er, to rest I'll be laid,
Why should I linger when your love is dead.
Some day, maybe, there'll come to thee
Thoughts of a bright, happy past; '
But, after all, why now recall
Moments of bliss that not last:
Why should I try to tempt my fate
when you say "It is too late." - Chorus.
