VP_013390 Verse 1Just "Goodbye" forever, And each tie you sever, Two words are spoken, One heart is broken; But 'ere you go, just remember dear. Chorus 1Forever means when summer brings the roses, They'll waken mem'ries in your heart; "Forever" means the songs we love, together, Will lose their sweetness when we part "Forever" dear, means that we near The twilight of a day sublime, When you say "Goodbye forever," just remember That "Forever" is a long, long time. Verse 2From afar I'll love you, Ev'ry star above you, Dreams will awaken, Tho' I'm forsaken; Back to my own I will come again. Chorus 2From afar I'll love you, Ev'ry star above you, Dreams will awaken, Tho' I'm forsaken; Back to my own I will come again.
