8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Since you've gone away,  One thing is clear to me,
You were dearer than dear to me,  From the moment you came.
Evenings, by your side,  I learn'd to love the night,
But the loveliness of the night is no longer the same.
When Day Is Done and shaddows fall,  I dream of you,
When Day Is Done I think of all the joys we knew.
That yearning returning to hold you in my arms,
Won't go love,  I know love without you night has lost its charm.
When Day s Done and grass is wet with twilight's dew,
My lonely heart is sinking like the sun.
Al-though I miss your tender kiss the whole day through,
I miss you most of all When Day Is Done.
