You ask me why I look so sad on this bright summer's day
And why the tears are in my eyes and I seem so far away
Well sit yourself beside me love and put your hand in mine
And I'll tell you of someone I loved long long before your time

I’m sitting here and thinking of the days so long ago
When I was just a child like you and a girl I used to know
Through fields of green we laughed and played and sang our merry rhymes
Oh summer days were warmer then long long before your time

One lovely year was all we had until the sickness came
And stole the roses from her cheeks my tears they fell like rain
For nine long months she carried you but in the end she died
She chose to go so you might live long long before your time

So you ask me why I look so sad on this bright summer day
And why the tears are in my eyes I seem so far away
It’s just you look a lot like her when your eyes look into mine
And you smile so much like she did long long before your time
