Faint Harmony

Faint Harmony

(Vivian Ellis / Desmond Carte)

Lew Stone & His Band

Faint harmony
Echoing down the years to me
Saying there’s something wrong
With our love song

Faint melody
Speaking of things that used to be
Making me dream and long
For our love song

It must have been this chord
That love stuck in my heart
Now somehow a dischord
Has taken its place and we drifted apart

Faint harmony
Only a trick of memory
Saying that things are wrong
With our love song
