One day we walked along the sand,
one day in early spring
You held a piper in your hand,
to mend its broken wing.
Now I'll remember many a day,
and many a lonely mile,
the echo of the piper's song,
the shadow of a smile.
The shadow of your smile when you are gone
will color all my dreams and light the dawn
Look into my eyes, my love, and see
all the lovely things you are to me.
Our wistful little star was far too high
A teardrop kissed your lips, and so did I
Now when I remember spring,
all the joy that love can bring*
I will be remembering te shadow of your smile.
*Auf der Platte lautet diese Zeile:
"and every little lovely thing"
