Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 27
MY LOVE REMAINS THE SAME.
Copyright, 1887, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words and Music by Will H Fox.
In early youth I loved a girl, yes, dearer than my life;
She was to me a priceless pearl, and would have been my wife;
But through my parents' haughty pride a separation came.
And I was forced to leave her, yet my love remains the same.
She's gone from me, my heart's best love, and though we never meet again,
Why all thro' life and until death my love remains the same;
Yea, all thro' life and util death my love remains the same.
They tell me she forgets me now; another fills my place,
Yet absence makes me love her more I see no other face;
Although love's chains are severed, and we're forced to live apart,
I'll always keep a trysting place for her within my heart. Chorus.
