-------------------------------------------------------
 
My thoughts go back to a heavenly dance
A moment of bliss we spent
Our hearts were filled with a song of romance
As into the night we went
And sang to our hearts' content
 
The song is ended
But the melody lingers on
You and the song are gone
But the melody lingers on
 
The night was splendid
And the melody seemed to say
"Summer will pass away
Take your happiness while you may"
 
There 'neath the light of the moon
We sang a love song that ended too soon
 
The moon descended
And I found with the break of dawn
You and the song had gone
But the melody lingers on
