Lyrics I REMEMBER OTHER DAYS,
HOW I USED TO WEEP
OVER THINGS YOU SAID TO ME,
I COULDN'T EVEN SLEEP.
YOU FORGOT YOUR PROMISES,
EV'RY SINGLE VOW,
ALL YOU DID WAS LAUGH AT ME
BUT THINGS ARE DIFF'RENT NOW.

I CRIED FOR YOU,
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN
TO CRY OVER ME.
EV'RY ROAD HAS A TURNING
THAT'S ONE THING YOU'RE LEARNING.
I CRIED FOR YOU,
WHAT A FOOL I USED TO BE.
NOW I FOUND TWO EYES
JUST A LITTLE BIT BLUER,
I FOUND A HEART
JUST A LITTLE BIT TRUER.
I CRIED FOR YOU,
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN
TO CRY OVER ME.

HOW CAN I FORGET THE HOURS
THAT I WORRIED THROUGH?
WONDERING THE LIVE-LONG DAY
JUST WHAT NEXT THING TO DO.
IN THOSE DAYS
YOU NEVER THOUGHT ANYTHING
OF ME,
BUT THE SLAVE
THAT WAS ALL YOURS
AND NOW AT LAST IS FREE.

I CRIED FOR YOU,
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN
TO CRY OVER ME.
EV'RY ROAD HAS A TURNING
THAT'S ONE THING YOU'RE LEARNING.
I CRIED FOR YOU,
WHAT A FOOL I USED TO BE.
NOW I FOUND TWO EYES
JUST A LITTLE BIT BLUER,
I FOUND A HEART
JUST A LITTLE BIT TRUER.
I CRIED FOR YOU,
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN
TO CRY OVER ME.

Lyrics I'M A DREAMER,
AREN'T WE ALL?
JUST A DREAMER,
AREN'T WE ALL?
IN MY DREAMS
EACH NIGHT IT SEEMS
MY SWEETHEART COMES TO CALL..
HE'S SO CHARMING,
STRONG AND TALL,
IT'S ALARMING HOW I FALL!
HE'S IDEAL,
BUT THEN HE ISN'T REAL,
AND I'M A FOOL,
BUT AREN'T WE ALL?

Lyrics I SEE LILACS IN THE RAIN,
AND YOU ARE WITH ME AGAIN,
WHEN APRIL SPRINKLES HER DREAMS
IN MY HEART.
WHEN WE PARTED IN THE LANE,
THE SKIES WERE TEARFUL WITH RAIN,
THE SCENT OF LILACS
REMAINED IN MY HEART.

TWO OTHER ARMS AROUND YOU NOW,
SOME OTHER LOVE
HAS FOUND YOU NOW!
BUT WHEN LOVE FORGETS TO SMILE,
MY DARLING, ONCE IN A WHILE,
REMEMBER APRIL
AND LILACS IN THE RAIN!

Lyrics THREE LITTLE WORDS,
OH, WHAT I'D GIVE
FOR THAT WONDERFUL PHRASE.
TO HEAR THOSE
THREE LITTLE WORDS,
THAT'S ALL I'D LIVE FOR
THE REST OF MY DAYS
AND WHAT I FEEL IN MY HEART,
THEY TELL SINCERELY,
NO OTHER WORDS CAN TELL IT
HALF SO CLEARLY.
THREE LITTLE WORDS,
EIGHT LITTLE LETTERS,
WHICH SIMPLY MEAN,
I LOVE YOU!
