When I think of Tom I think about a night
When the earth smelled of summer,
And the sky was streaked with white,
And the soft mist of England was sleeping on a hill;
I remember this
And I always will.
There are new lovers now on the same silent hill,
Looking on the same blue sea.
And I know Tom and I are a part of them all,
And they're all a part of Tom and me.
Hello, young lovers,
Whoever you are,
I hope your troubles are few.
All my good wishes go with you tonight
I've been in love like you
Be brave, young lovers, and follow your star,
Be brave and faithful and true
Cling very close to each other tonight
I've been in love like you.
I know how it feels to have wings on your heels,
And to fly down a street in a trance.
You fly down a street on a chance that you'll meet,
And you meet not really by chance.
Don't cry, young lovers,
Whatever you do,
Don't cry because I'm alone.
All of my mem'ries are happy tonight
I've had a love of my own,
I've had a love of my own like yours,
I've had a love of my own.
