The night is dark, and I am far from home I may not make it back all on my own, So, if you hear this, please kindly pass it on To the one person for whom I write this song. Tell her I love her; please tell her not to cry If it should happen I'm not back tonight Tell her I'm glad that I could call her mine From when we met, right to the present time. *** This cruel world may have the best of me; I thought it slight; it's strong, in fact, you see. But here I am, ready at last to call Time on this fierce-fought battle for my soul. Tell her I love her; please tell her not to cry If it should happen I'm not back tonight Tell her I'm glad that I could call her mine From when we met, right to the present time. Tell her I love her; please tell her not to cry If it should happen that tonight I die; But, if I live, ask her to be my wife And I will love her for the rest of my life.

Well, hello again; you look, to me, just the same; Hope you'll forgive me if I don't say your name. You look so beautiful; your locks glow like the sun; I hear you're happy; and in love with another man. Me? I'm the same, I guess; I watch the world pass by, I loved but once; never again, until I die. Forever young, I will therefore be, While others fall in love and be happy. [BRIDGE] I wish you well; I hear you're with child; I hope that he grows up to be gentle and kind; And when he meets a girl, let his love joyful be, Let him not live through things like what you did to me. [BRIDGE] I must go now - for yonder dawn now breaks And ghosts of times gone past now leave must take; The candle's out, I'm sorry I cannot Remain in touch ... we are but best forgot.

And the heroes stand up. And they never give up Their faith in a better life And the heroes defy Expectations, and try For a world of peace, not strife. And we owe it to them To avoid, once again, The path that leads to pain When they all, young and old, Want a wonderful world Where there's sunshine, where there's rain. They stand up today As they do, always, Every time and place, Smiles on their face. They stand up, like this, They believe in peace; They believe, do you? That to love is true. [BRIDGE] And we owe it to them To avoid, once again, The path that leads to pain When they all, young and old, Want a wonderful world Where there's sunshine, where there's rain.
