Once upon a time you whispered softly in my ear
Lovin' words and fairy tales that I longed to hear
I gave you my body and soul and you took control
As you slowly swept me up and carried me away

You told me pretty lies
As I held onto you tight
You knew how to get your way
Ignorance was bliss in your warm embrace

Long ago
You used to want me
Now it's all so far away
But you still haunt me
And take me back to yesterday

Every now and then I drown in thoughts of yesterday
And the fools' paradise that you blew away
I feel you beside me again and remember
When you came to my window on a dark and stormy day

Baby, I need you now
Tonight I'm crumbling down
Sinkin' in the memories
Shadows of you keep washin' over me

Long ago
You used to want me
Now it's all so far away
But you still haunt me

Long ago
You used to want me
Now it's all so far away
But you still haunt me
And take me back to yesterday

So long ago, so long ago
So long ago, so long ago
So long ago, so long ago
So long ago, so long ago

Baby, I need you now
'Cause tonight I'm crumblin' down
Sinkin' in the memories
Shadows of you keep washin' over me

Long ago
You used to want me
Now it's all so far away
But you still haunt me
And take me back to yesterday

Long ago
You used to want me
Now it's all so far away
But you still haunt me

Long ago
You used to want me
Now it's all so far away
But you still haunt me
