Too Beautiful To Last
Engelbert Humperdinck Lyrics


The days of autumn splendor
Those moments warm and tender
Was it to beautiful to last?
The love we shared together
The dreams we dared together
Was it to beautiful to last?

Walking hand in hand
The dawn discloses we
Were dreaming of a land
Where love reposes
But castles made of sand
Like winter roses
Are fated to die
My darling, like you and I
My darling...

Where are those sweet Septembers
The joy my heart remembers?
Lost in the shadows of the past
The rainbow watched above you
The sacred words, I love you
Why did the dream go by so fast?

Walking hand in hand
The dawn discloses we
Were dreaming of a land
Where love reposes
But castles made of sand
Like winter roses
Are fated to die
My darling, like you and I
My darling...

Where are those sweet Septembers
The joy my heart remembers?
Lost in the shadows of the past
The rainbow watched above you
The sacred words, I love you
Why did that dream go by so fast?
Was it to beautiful...
Was it to beautiful to last?

Oh my God, I have been searching for this song since I was 14. I played it on a jukebox on holiday in Spain all the time and wrote down the song titel in Spanish. When I came home I tried all music stores but no one had heard of it. So for years I have been listening to heaps of songs by Engelbert to find it. All I remember was - where are those sweet Septembers and the melody. Of course it reminds me of teenlove. So I am so happy and grateful that you have shared it!! Thank you sooooooo much:)

Glad you finally found it! It is beautiful and based on a true love story for the film "Nicholas and Alexandra", from 1971!

I'm a dance skater, I danced the glide waltz to this at the skating rink when I was younger , I'm much better now , I learned more songs, but this one gets stuck in my mind forever.
