VP_007796 Verse 1When all the world seems so merry and bright, I'm dreaming of days past recall, Wond'ring if someone can see me tonight, As the tears from my eyes gently fall, All I have, all I hold, Are just dreams to unfold In each line of those letters of old. Chorus 1Faded old love letters, (you know) They mean the world to me, (world to me,) Each night I read them over, (I read them o'er,) They are my rosary, (they're my rosary,) My little Pal I've lost you, (I've lost you,) But like a star you shine, (star you shine,) Tho' your dear hands are still, In my heart there's a thrill, For those faded love letters of mine. I'll keep those mine. From that old Pal of mine. Verse 2A garden had I with one little rose, Just one little rose of my heart, One day they took her, and nobody knows, What it meant when we two came to part, All I have to adore, All I have to live for Are love letters I read o'er and o'er. Chorus 2Faded old love letters, They mean the world to me, Each night I read them over, They are my rosary, My little Pal I've lost you, But like a star you shine, Tho' your dear hands are still, In my heart there's a thrill, For those faded love letters of mine.
