Verse:
Since you've gone a - way,  One thing is clear to me,
You were dear - er than dear to me,  From the mo - ment you came.
Eve - nings, by your side,  I learn'd to love the night,
But the love - li - ness of the night is no lon - ger the same.
 
Chorus:
When Day Is Done & shad - dows fall,  I dream of you;
When Day Is Done I think of all the joys we knew.
That yearn - ing re - turn - ing to hold you in my arms,
Won't go love,  I know love with - out you night has lost its charm.
When Day s Done & grass is wet with twi - light's dew,
My lone - ly heart is sink - ing like the sun.
Al-though I miss your ten - der kiss the whole day through,
I miss you most of all When Day Is Done.
