    "Once I Believed" Lyrics

    Joe Derise

    Once I believed

    Lyrics: john h. burns


    I took for granted the simplest joys of life.
    Smiles always came after tears.
    Day after day, year into year
    All those pleasures I knew
    Are no longer true


    Once I believed that with april came spring
    And the songs a young lover would sing.
    Well, here it is april
    But there's no sign of spring.

    Why was I fooled by the old standard rule
    That with roses there must be perfume.
    Well, here are the roses
    But there is no perfume.

    Like the leaves that kiss the trees goodbye
    To grace the fallen snow
    Foolish I kissed my heart good bye.
    And like the leaves if find the snow is cold.

    Once I believed that no sad songs I'd sing.
    Now the goddess of love's had her fling.
    She took away my love
    And left no sign of spring.
