Happy Days and Lonely Nights

Written by Billy Rose and Fred Fisher (1928)

With the parting of the ways
You took all my happy days
And left me lonely nights.

Morning never comes too soon
I can face the afternoon
But oh, those lonely nights.

I feel your arms around me,
Your kisses linger yet,
You taught me how to love you,
Now teach me to forget!
You broke my heart a million ways
When you took my happy days
And left me lonely nights.
