The days of wine and roses
Smile and run away like a child at play
Through a meadow land toward a closing door
A door marked 'Nevermore' that wasn't there before

The lonely night discloses
Just a passing breeze filled with memories
Of the golden smile that introduced me to
The days of wine and roses and you

The lonely night discloses
Just a passing breeze filled with memories
Of the golden laugh that introduced me to
The days of wine and roses and you
