There were shadows on the sand, closely mingled
Just two lovers by a moonlit sea
While I watched I thought of you and I tingled
For they kissed the way that you did me
Then the shadows came much nearer
And the moon was like a spotlight then
There was one familiar face showing clearer
It was you, I couldn't look again...
I felt so sad
There you were with someone new
I felt so glad
When I found it wasn't true
For the shadows on the sand seemed to break up
And I looked around me with a start
When the pounding of my heart made me wake up
From a dream that nearly broke my heart...!
