Lyrics[]

Bob:
The summer sun went down
On our love long ago
But in my heart I feel
The same old afterglow

A love so beautiful
In every way
A love so beautiful
We let it slip away

Wendy:
We were too young to understand
To ever know
That lovers drift apart
And that's the way love goes

A love so beautiful
A love so sweet
A love so beautiful
A love for you and me

Both:
And when I think of you
I fall in love again

A love so beautiful
In every way
A love so beautiful
We let it slip away
Away

A love so beautiful
In every way
A love so beautiful
We let it slip away
