Electric Light Orchestra Once Upon A Time Lyrics

Last updated:

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
'Cos 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
'Cos 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
'Cos 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
