Perry Como - "Shadow of Your Smile ( Love Theme from "The Sandpiper" )" lyrics

One day we walked along the sand
one day in early spring . . .
You held a piper in your hand
to mend it's broken wing
Now, I'll remember many a day
an' many a lonely mile
The echo of a piper's song
an' the shadow of a smile!

The shadow of your smile
when you are gone . . .
will color all my dreams
and light the dawn . . .
Look into my eyes, my love, and see
all the lovely things you are . . . you are to me!

Our wistful little star
was far too high . . .
A teardrop kissed your lips
and so did I . . .
Now, when I remember spring,
all the joy that love can bring . . .
I will be remembering,
the shadow of your smile!

< instrumental break >

Now, when I remember spring,
all the joy that love can bring . . .
I will be remembering,
the shadow of your smile!
