Smile as You Kiss Me Good-Bye (1918)

Vocal Range



Soon you will be
Over the sea,
Somewhere in France, dear, fighting for me.
Seeing you start,
Near breaks my heart,
But in dreams I’ll be with you though we’re miles apart.

For what is an ocean between hearts that love?
We’ll meet each twilight in Dreamland above.
So dry every teardrop, forget every sigh,
And smile as you kiss me good-bye.

While over there,
Your heart will share
My every dream and my every prayer.
You will not be
Love o’er the sea,
For my prayers soon will bring you back safely to me.
