Piccadilly Sand Farewell (Dardanelles) video

It's so lovely to walk
upon the warm sand together,
Hand in hand with the one
you love on a summer's day;
As we stroll by the gently
rollin' waters I remember,
Promises we made and
things we had to say.

I knew a day would come
when I'd have to go away,
To a far distant shore;
love would have to stay.

So farewell to yesterday
perhaps there'll be another,
Who will wash away your tears
and take you by the hand;
Farewell to all kind and true lovers,
We were soft as the winds
upon the summer sand.

'Cause love's a broken wing;
love's a candle in the rain;
Love will pass away;
love can always come again.

So let the drums roar,
and the guns all go a-rolling,
Here ever after I'll do all I can;
But I will remember tender kisses stolen,
I remember laughter on the Piccadilly Sand.
