VP_018702 Verse 1I used to dread our parting, I sighted to see you leave, But since you left, my Darling, I've learned something once I'd not believe. Chorus 1Absence makes the heart grow fonder, I'm so glad you went away, Do you find it so, I wonder, That your love grows more each day? For I never really thought that I could be true dear, But your love has taught me things that I never knew I know that Absence makes the heart grow fonder, That's why I'm so fond of you. Verse 2The sun once more is shining, A rainbow's in the sky, I've learned by your returning, 'Twas the best we had to say goodbye.
