Track Name: Remember Me
Remember Me

If on my grave the summer grass were growing,
Or heedless winter winds across it blowing,
Through joyous June, or desolate December,
How long, sweetheart, how long would you remember

For brightest eyes would open to the summer,
And sweetest smiles would greet the sweet new-comer,
And on young lips grow kisses for the taking,
When all the summer buds to bloom are breaking

Would you remember
Remember me
Would you remember
...
Would you remember
Remember me
Would you remember
me

To the dim land where sad-eyed ghosts walk only,
Where lips are cold, and waiting hearts are lonely,
I would not call you from your youth’s warm blisses,
Fill up your glass and crown it with new kisses

Would you remember
Remember me
Would you remember
...
Would you remember
Remember me
Would you remember
me

Too gay in June you might be to regret me,
And living lips might woo you to forget me;
But ah, sweetheart, I think you would remember
When winds were weary in your life’s December

Would you remember
Remember me
Would you remember
...
Would you remember
Remember me
Would you remember
me
Track Name: Two Shadows
Two Shadows

I saw … two shadows walking
Yet I was there alone
Two shadows … softly drifting
As I walked on my own

Two shadows … in the sunlight
Two shadows there with me
As I turned … round to see them
One mine, the other she

But she was … not there with me
Not there, not by my side
Yet still … two shadows lingered
Though long ago she died

I saw … two shadows walking
Upon that lovely day
I saw … one softly drifting
Then slowly fade away
Track Name: Surrender
Surrender

I was wise, I never gave
What they teach a girl to save,
But I wished myself his slave
When my love was gone.

I was all alone at night
When my love came home.
What thought of wrong or right
When my love came home?

The nights were dark and cold,
When my love was gone.
And life was hard to hold
When my love was gone.

I flung the door back wide
And I pulled my love inside;
There was no more shame or pride
When my love came home.

The nights were dark and cold,
When my love was gone.
And life was hard to hold
When my love was gone.
Track Name: New Love And Old
New Love And Old

In my heart the old love
Struggled with the new;
It was ghostly waking
All night through.

Dear things, kind things,
That my old love said,
Ranged themselves reproachfully
Round my bed.

But I could not heed them,
For I seemed to see
The eyes of my new love
Fixed on me.

Old love, old love,
How can I be true?
Shall I be faithless to myself
Or to you?
