Verse:
Here we go a -gain just rem -i -nisc -ing,
Dream -ing of yes -ter -day, And the joys we're miss -ing.
 
Chorus:
We Three we're all a -lone, Liv -ing in a mem -o -ry,
My ech -o, my shad -ow and me
We Three, we're not a crowd, We're not e -ven com -pa -ny,
My ech -o, my shad -ow and me.
What good is the moon -light, The sil -ver -y moon -light that shines a -bove?
I walk with my shad -ow, I talk with my ech -o, But where is the one I love?
We Three, we'll wait for you, Ev -en 'till e -ter -ni -ty,
My ech -o, my shad -ow and me.
