last night when we were young lyrics – barbara cook

last night when we were young
love was a star, a song unsung
life was so new, so real, so right
ages ago, last night
today the world is old
you went away and time grew cold
where is that star that seem so bright
ages ago, last night?
to think that spring had depended
on merely this, a look, a kiss
to think that something so splendid
could fade away in one little daybreak
so now, let’s reminisce
and recollect the sighs and the kisses
the arms that clung
when we were young last night
