When You Were Sweet Sixteen

Finbar & Eddie Furey, The FureysBuy this song

When first I saw the love-light in your eyes, 
I dreamed the world held not but joy for me. 
And even though we drifted far apart, 
I never dream but what I dream of thee. 

I love you as I never loved before, 
Since first I met you on the village green. 
Come to me or my dream of love is or, 
I love you as I loved you, when you were sweet, 
When you were sweet sixteen. 

I love you as I never loved before, 
Since first I met you on the village green. 
Come to me or my dream of love is or . . . 
I love you as I loved you, when you were sweet, 
When you were sweet sixteen.
