Following lyrics transcribed from listed source.
(WHEN THE CANDLE LIGHTS ARE GLEAMING)
Recorded by: Lulu Belle and Scotty (Wiseman)
Writer: Scotty Wiseman
The sweetest songs belong to lovers in the gloaming
The sweetest days are the days that used to be
The saddest words I ever heard were words of parting
When you said "Sweetheart, remember me."
Remember me when the candle lights are gleaming
Remember me at the close of a long, long day
It would be so sweet when all alone I'm dreaming
Just to know you still remember me.
You told me once that you were mine alone, forever
And I was yours 'til the end of eternity
But all our vows are broken now and you will never
Be the same, except in memory.
A fairer face will take your place when we're apart, dear
A sweeter smile, and a love more bold and free
But in the end, fair weather friends may break your heart, dear
If they do, sweetheart, remember me.
