I can never go back to the little cafe with the candle light
That was our cafe and to go there without you just wouldn't seem right
Besides I don't want to touch that part of life that meant so much
The days the world belonged to us just us
And I'd telephone at three in the morning just to say hello
And all sleepy eyed you breathed and sighed I love you so
And sometimes we just talked for hours dreaming dreams and building towers
All the world was filled with flowers for us
And I'm gonna miss you for a long long time

I can never go back to the cabin there on the mountain side
Where I built a fire and held you close while it snowed outside
And remember you let me sleep all day so we could love the night away
Oh it just found yesterday and us
I've tried making new friends walking new streets finding new thrills
But nothing new replaces you and it never will
I'll just live my life in memory grateful that you once loved me
Thankful that there used to be and us
And I'm gonna miss you for a long long time
