VP_011077 Verse 1Do you forget when first we met, The happiness we knew? Do you recall that most of all, My heart belonged to you? It was not long there came a change, My faith in you had fled, The things you said were never true, And now my soul is dead! Chorus 1For ev'ry smile you gave to me, You caused a thousand tears, For ev'ry day of happiness, I've lived a thousand years, I played the game of love and lost, You cheated and I paid the cost, For ev'ry smile you gave to me, You caused a thousand tears. Verse 2All through the night I dreamed of you, The promises you made, I longed for love that once I knew, Before your shrine I prayed, You'll win another heart some day, You'll break each promise, too; Tho' I forgive I can't forget, Just what I've been to you!
