Once Upon A Time
Frank Sinatra Lyrics


Once upon a time
A girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine
And said she loved me so
But that was once upon a time
Very long ago

Once upon a hill
We sat beneath a willow tree
Counting all the stars and waiting for the dawn
But that was once upon a time
Now the tree is gone

How the breeze ruffled through her hair
How we always laughed as though tomorrow wasn't there
We were young and didn't have a care
Where did it go

Once upon a time
The world was sweeter than we knew
Everything was ours
How happy we were then
But somehow once upon a time
Never comes again

Once upon a time
Never comes again

It's Not Just A Love Song.
It's a Story of Your Life as Time Passes
One Day You Find...
Everything Has Changed
You Are Old And You Remember...

But You Can Never Go Back
To Those Wonderful Days
When...
Once Upon a Time
The World Was Sweeter Than We Knew
When
Everything Was Ours
How Happy We Were Then

But Somehow
Once Upon A Time
Never Comes Again
.........
It Never Comes Again

This song will always have incredible meaning to me, along with being perfectly done. 5 years ago, after 33 years of marriage my wife and I had separated. By July I was seeing someone else who was wonderful. At one point I was driving to see her and this song came on at a stoplight, and flooded me with so many memories I had to pull of the road for 20-25 minutes remembering the past, the love, the laughter, wondering how it got to where we were right then and there in 2015. It was an overwhelming flood of all the good in my marriage.

This must have been destined to happen. About 6 weeks later I ended up painfully extricating myself from the current relationship because I had to see if I should try again before throwing 33 years away. 5 years later it is still working because my wife and I both figured out how to treat each other more kindly than we would people we don't know. This song still tears me apart but in a good way, because for us, unlike the last line of the song, once upon a time came again. This song had a role in that.

At almost 72 yrs old this tune means so much to me, not only a beautiful tune, but very real lyrics about life..... if you could only tell the kids........

This song hits home with all of the hatred we have today in our world.
