​Once upon a Time

This song is by ELO Part II and appears on the album Electric Light Orchestra Part Two (1990).

Meeting you in the park and talking in the pouring rain
(Oh what a time we had)
Running home in the dark and pretending it was all a game
(Oh what a time)
Those were the days, those were the days

Memories of you have really left a scar
And all that I can do now is to love you from afar
'Cause everything was fine
That once upon a time

Asking you if you'd stay, not believing that you might
(Oh what a time we had)
Missing you through the day, dreaming of you through the night
(Oh what a time)
Those were the days, those were the days

Though there's no denying that you're nowhere around
I can't help myself from looking for your face amongst the crowd
'Cause everything was fine, that once upon a time

Have to leave the past behind me and get on the right track
Though there's nothing I can say that will ever bring you back
But everything was fine, that once upon a time

I wish I knew for how much longer this misery will last
Can't control these feelings, I'm still living in the past
'Cause everything was fine, that once upon a time
I've got to build my life again, try to find somebody new
But I know inside my heart of hearts there'll be no replacing you
But everything was fine, that once upon a time
