Jimmy Durante — When Day Is Done lyrics

Since you've gone away one thing is clear to me
You were dearer than dear to me from the moment you came
Evenings by your side I learned to love the night
But the loveliness of the night is no longer the same

When day is done and shadows fall, I dream of you
When day is done I think of all the joys we knew
That yearnin', returnin' to hold you in my arms
Won't go love, I know love, without you night has lost its charm

When day is done and grass is wet with twilight's dew
My lonely heart is sinkin' with the sun
Although I miss your tender kiss the whole day through
I miss you most of all when day is done
When day is done
