Oklahoma State Country & Western Song:
"Faded Love"

"Faded Love"

As I look at the letters that you wrote to me
It's you that I am thinking of
As I read the lines that to me were so sweet
I remember our faded love

I miss you darling more and more every day
As heaven would miss the stars above
With every heartbeat I still think of you
And remember our faded love

As I think of the past and all the pleasures we had
As I watch the mating of the dove
It was in the springtime when you said goodbye
I remember our faded love

I miss you darling more and more every day
As heaven would miss the stars above
With every heartbeat I still think of you
And remember our faded lovePre text starts 3 spaces in

It's you that I am thinking of.
As I read the lines that to me were so sweet,
I remember our faded love.

I miss you, Darling, more and more every day
As heaven would miss the stars above.
With every heartbeat, I still think of you
And remember our faded love.

As I think of the past and all the pleasures we had,
As I watch the mating of the dove,
It was in the springtime when you said goodbye.
I remember our faded love.

I miss you, Darling, more and more every day
As heaven would miss the stars above.
With every heartbeat, I still think of you
And remember our faded love.
