Beside the Cherry Tree

Oh I miss your smiles and your tears
I cry for your soft sighs in the sunlight
Remembering things I never knew
Do you remember them too?

Don't cry for me, and I won't cry for you
Listen to the sky and you'll remember me by and by
See the Angels walking in the gardens
Beside the cherry tree.
Yes, the same tree where you first said you loved me

I forgive you, even if you don't know who I am
We've never met, but I still mourn for you
You search for me beside the stars,
Through the deepest trees,
I wait beyond the diamond seas.

You belong beside the jade, I beside the mountains
Never will you find me,
And never will I see you
Just remember the things that have never been
And it'll give you memories, that never come true.

Don't cry for me, and I won't cry for you
Listen to the sky and you'll remember me by and by
See the Angels walking in the gardens
Beside the cherry tree.
Yes, the same tree where you first said you loved me

I will wait for things that happened long ago
And I will sing the songs of old love yet untold
You will play for me, though I will never hear
Your songs of beauty and lovers of gold.

Though I will miss you,
I don't regret a thing.
It's better to remember the face I've never seen
Than forget a love I never got to know....

Don't cry for me, and I won't cry for you
Listen to the sky and you'll remember me by and by
See the Angels walking in the gardens
Beside the cherry tree.
Yes, the same tree where you first said you loved me
