lyrics

How Could I Forget

The first time I saw you, your skin was brown
You wore your cap just like a crown
I’d be your queen even for a day
You’d kiss me once and then you’d say
‘I wanna be alone with you tonight
I wanna be alone with you tonight’

Well those were the days of heart and soul
You were the rock, I was the roll
And if we danced to our own beat,
We’d always land back on our feet
I wanna be alone with you tonight,
Cos baby I am missing you tonight

Remember how we’d go down by the river on a Saturday night
When the moon was layin low and the stars were shining bright
Oh your baby blues
Sparklin in the light of your cigarette
He said ‘how could I forget?’

Well I loved you then and I love you still
You’ve got a hold on me that time won’t kill
If you’re ever coming back this way
Won’t you come around and stay
I wanna be alone with you again
Cos baby I am missing you again

Remember how we’d go down by the river on a Saturday night
When the moon was layin low and the stars were shining bright
Oh your baby blues
Sparklin in the light of your cigarette
He said ‘how could I forget?’

What it was to be held by you
How could I forget
What it was to be loved by you
By you
The last time I saw you your smile had changed
You weren’t so young and unafraid
All you wanted was to be free
Come be free with me
I wanna be alone with you again
I wanna be alone with you again

Remember how we’d go down by the river on a Saturday night
When the moon was layin low and the stars were shining bright
Oh your baby blues
Sparklin in the light of your cigarette

We could go down by the river like those younger days
With the world at our feet, lady luck smiling our way
And oh your baby blues,
Laughin in the face of regret
He said ‘how could I forget?’
