We say farewell, you board the train
I glimpse your face, as true as flame
The girl I knew, our youngest years
I look to see, reflections there
By this song, I pledge to thee
Who should know, better than me?

The rains will pass, evoke your voice
I walk alone, by my own choice
This esplanade, where lovers walk
To taste new wine, and truly talk
By this song, I pledge to thee
Who should know, better than me?

And if your arms, where I did lie
Should hold again, should find new eyes
In them reveal, the worth of you
Sweet liberty, the core of you!
By this song, I pledge to thee
Who should know, better than me?

And when we pass, in autumn streets
The densest skies, the swiftest streams
I find repose, within your gaze
Delight with you, in old love play
By this song, I pledge to thee
Who should know, better than me?

The wind begins, this song is done
And lovers dream, in sweet restraint
But I find repose, within your gaze
Delight with you, yes in old love play
No sweeter joy, I think it's true
Who should know, better than you?
Who should know, better than you
