Songs of days gone by
by Alice McKiel

Here are a few songs Grandma used to sing while she knitted me a scarf or mittens


Now "blue" ain't the word for the way I feel,
And a storm is brewing in this heart of mine
This ain't no crazy dream, I know that it's real
You're someone else's love now,
You're not mine anymore.

Crazy arms that reach to hold somebody new
For my yearning heart keeps saying you're not mine
My troubled mind knows soon to another you'll be wed
And that's why I'm so lonely all the time.

So please take these treasured dreams I had for you and me,
And take all the love I thought was mine.
Some day my crazy arms may hold somebody new,
But now I'm so lonely all the time
