The days of autumn splendor 
Those moments warm and tender 
Was it to beautiful to last? 
The love we shared together 
The dreams we dared together 
Was it to beautiful to last? 

Walking hand in hand 
The dawn discloses we 
Were dreaming of a land 
Where love reposes 
But castles made of sand 
Like winter roses 
Are fated to die 
My darling, like you and I 
My darling... 

Where are those sweet Septembers 
The joy my heart remembers? 
Lost in the shadows of the past 
The rainbow watched above you 
The sacred words, I love you 
Why did the dream go by so fast? 

Walking hand in hand 
The dawn discloses we 
Were dreaming of a land 
Where love reposes 
But castles made of sand 
Like winter roses 
Are fated to die 
My darling, like you and I 
My darling... 

Where are those sweet Septembers 
The joy my heart remembers? 
Lost in the shadows of the past 
The rainbow watched above you 
The sacred words, I love you 
Why did that dream go by so fast? 
Was it to beautiful... 
Was it to beautiful to last?
