Marianne Faithfull — The Sha La La Song lyrics

At last it's over,
I knew I could not hold him,
His love for freedom
Was far too strong.

But though he's gone now
My life is just beginning,
I'll soon forget him,
I'll soon forget him,
I must forget him, Lord!

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la,
There's a brand new day beginning.
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la,
There's a brand new love that waits for me.

Will I remember,
Will I still hear him whisper?
Will I still feel his
Lips on mine?

In dreams I see him,
Perhaps he'll stay forever
And all I'm wishing
And all I'm hoping
And all my longing, too.

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la,
There's a brand new day beginning.
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la,
There's a brand new love that waits for me.

He made me happy
And though I suffered, too,
There's no mistaking
Our love was true.

But such a sweet love
Just wasn't meant to be
And it's all over
Yes, it's all over,
And now it's done I'll start anew.

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la,
There's a brand new day beginning.
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la,
There's a brand new love beginning.

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la,
There's a brand new day beginning.
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la,
There's a brand new love beginning.

Sha-la-la...
