Long Ago And Far Away
Jerome Kern (m), Ira Gershwin (w)
Cover Girl, 1944
Dreary days are over.
Life's a four-leaf clover.
Sessions of depressions are through.
Ev'ry hope I longed for, long ago, comes true.
Long ago and far away,
I dreamed a dream on day
And now that dream is here beside me.
Long the skies were overcast,
But now the clouds have passed:
You're here at last!
Chills run up and down my spine,
Aladdin's lamp is mine,
The dream I dreamed was not denied me.
Just one look and then I knew
That all I longed for, long ago, was you.
