You said good-bye, the parting words were spoken, I leave you now, perhaps 'tis better so? I gave you back each tender little token, And far across the seas then I may go, Oh! can it be from love you have released me? And that my love has always been in vain? Ah! when your love has conquered pride and anger, I know that you will call me back again.
Cho. - Call me back again! Call me back again! Ah! when your love has conpuered pride and anger, I know that you will call me back again.
You've left me now, I never more will see you, - Those happy days of old must now depart, The true, fond love I once bestowed upon you, Has flown away from me like Cupid's dart, Oh! yes 'tis so! from love you have released me! Such dreary thoughts have cause me grief and pain I love you still - such love will live forever; I know that you will call me back again;
I dreampt last night a pretty little starling Came gently tapping on my window blind, And in its bill a message from my darling, Which said that you'd recalled the words unkind; And my heart, love, ne'er can be a stranger, Such dreary thoughts have ceased to give me pain I love you still - such love will live forever; I know that yon [sic] will call me back again.
