    Not a sound from the pavement
    Has the moon lost her memory
    She is smiling alone
    In the lamp light
    The withered leaves collect at my feet
    And the wind begins to moan


    All alone in the moonlight
    I can smile at the old days
    I was beautiful then
    I remember
    The time I knew what happiness was
    Let the memory live again


    Every street lamp seems to beat a fatalistic warning
    Someone mutters and a street lamp shutters
    And soon it will be morning


    I must wait for the sunrise
    I must think of a new life
    And I musn't give in
    When the dawn comes
    Tonight will be a memory too
    And a new day will begin


    Touch me
    It's so easy to leave me
    All alone with the memory
    Of my days in the sun
    If you touch me
    You'll understand what happiness is
    Look a new day has begun
    Look a new day has begun
