    Long ago, and, oh, so far away
    I fell in love with you before the second show

    Don't you remember, you told me you loved me baby?

    Talkin' to myself and feelin' old
    Sometimes I'd like to quit, nothin' ever seems to fit
    Hangin' around, nothin' to do but frown

    Everything I want the world to be
