About Till Then

"Till Then" is a popular song written by Eddie Seiler, Sol Marcus, and Guy Wood and published in 1944. The song was a plea (presumably by a soldier off to fight the war) to his sweetheart to wait for him until he could get back home. Like many war-themed songs, it enjoyed great popularity when it came out in 1944, and versions by The Mills Brothers and the Les Brown orchestra dominated the charts. The recording by The Mills Brothers was released by Decca Records as catalog number 18599. It first reached the Billboard magazine Best Seller chart on September 21, 1944, and lasted three weeks on the chart, peaking at No. 8 (a two-sided hit, backed by "You Always Hurt the One You Love"). It also topped the R&B charts. Ten years later, the song once more became quite popular. Both a doo-wop version by Sonny Til & The Orioles and a traditional pop version by The Hilltoppers charted that year. The recording by The Hilltoppers was released by Dot Records as catalog number 15132. It first reached the Billboard Best Seller chart on January 23, 1954, and spent 11 weeks on the chart, peaking at No. 10. The song has continued to be popular, with versions recorded in later years by such as Sammy Davis Jr., James Brown, and Al Martino. A 1963 version by The Classics reached No. 20 on the chart.

Till then, my darling, please wait for me 
Till then, no matter when it will be 
Some day I know I'll be back again 
Please wait till then 

Our dreams will live though we are apart 
Our love I know we'll keep in our hearts 
Till then, when all the world will be free 
Please wait for me 

Although there are oceans we must cross 
And mountains that we must climb 
I know every gain must have a loss, 
So pray that our loss is nothing but time 

Till then, let's dream of what there will be 
Till then, we'll call on each memory 
Till then, when I will hold you again 
Please wait till then

Although there are oceans we must cross 
And mountains that we must climb 
I know every gain must have a loss, 
So pray that our loss is nothing but time 

Till then, let's dream of what there will be 
Till then, we'll call on each memory 
Till then, when I will hold you again 
Please wait till then
