Had we ne'er loved so kindly
Had we ne'er loved so blindly
Never met nor never parted
Never been so broken-hearted


Forever thou my fairest
Forever thou my dearest
Your eyes my joy my pleasure
Eternally my treasure


–from a poem by Robert Burns
Adapted by songwriter John Gorka

Forever Autumn - performed by Justin Hayward

The summer sun is fading as the year grows old
And darker days are drawing near
The winter winds will be much colder
Now you're not here

I watch the birds fly south across the autumn sky
And one by one they disappear
I wish that I was flying with them
Now you're not here

Like the sun through the trees you came to love me
Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away

Through autumn's golden gown we used to kick our way
You always loved this time of year
Those fallen leaves lie undisturbed now 'cause you're not here
'Cause you're not here 'cause you're not here

Like the sun through the trees you came to love me
Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away

A gentle rain falls softly on my weary eyes
As if to hide a lonely tear
My life will be forever autumn 'cause you're not here
'Cause you're not here, 'cause you're not here
