Just as Though You Were Here Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

I'll wake each morning and I'll promise to laugh
I'll say good morning to your old photograph
And I'll speak to you, dear, just as though you were here

When purple shadows start to welcome the dark
I'll take the same old stroll we took through the park
And I'll cling to you, dear, just as though you were here

So don't be afraid that distance and time will finally tear us apart
The farther you go, the longer you stay
The deeper you grow in my heart

Each night before I wander off into sleep
I'll bring to light the tears I've buried so deep
Then I'll kiss you, my dear, just as though you were here

Each night before I wander off into sleep
I'll bring to light the tears I've buried so deep
Then I'll kiss you, my dear, and though you are gone
My love for you goes on, darling, just as though you were here
