It all comes back to me gain,
That summer by the sea,
Its changeful scenes I now review,
So dear to memory,
The years may come, and years may go,
While bides life’s sad refrain,
But none as bright, my heart may know
Can come to me again.

It all comes back to me again,
That summer by the sea,
Its golden hours I now recall,
So dear to memory.

It all comes back to me again,
The story ever new.
You breathed to me beneath the stars,
My love so fond and true;
We did not know the future then,
’Twas hidden from our sight,
But we’ll renew those sacred vows
Beyond the tears; and night.

It all comes back to me again,
The past I’ll ne’er forget,
Those sunny days beside the sea,
Without one sad regret,
E’en then the reaper was as near,
That all my hopes hath slain,
But you are gone and I am here,
It all comes back again.
