World We Knew Lyrics

Artist: Frank Sinatra

Over and over I keep going over the world we knew
Once when you walked beside me
That inconceivable, that unbelievable world we knew
When we two were in love

And every bright neon sign turned into stars
And the sun and the moon seemed to be ours
Each road that we took turned into gold
But the dream was too much for you to hold

Now over and over I keep going over the world we knew
Days when you used to love me

*instrumental-last two lines of first verse*

And every bright neon sign turned into stars
And the sun and the moon seemed to be ours
Each road that we took, it turned into gold
But the dream was too much for you to hold

Now over and over I keep going over the world we knew
Days when you used to love me
Over and over I keep going over the world we knew

I was a 22 year old kid then. I'm 63 now. And this song became a bit hit for Frank in 1967.
You will appreciate why this song brings back to me so manny precious memories.
The lyric line I love the most is BUT THE DREAM WAS TOO MUCH FOR YOU TO HOLD. And the music that cascades into a semi-tone right at the end of that bar.
Great, Frank !

I'm young (27) and even though I'm young, I consider this song one of the saddest and most romantic songs I've ever heard. I almost start crying and I feel all the words and strains I hear.
But I still believe that you need to have felt as he felt to understand. If the person I'm thinking about when I listen to that song only knew...

I still remember the Sinatra of"for only the lonely", and Ebb Tide, and Autumn in N.Y.but this one is really amazing!

Unfortunately I come back to this song, the words expressing exactly what has happened to me recently. I really thought we could have had another chance, but he wouldn't want to. I don't know if hope will ever help again. Until then, "I keep going the world we knew", Hope none of you will feel the same so just enjoy it as a really beautiful song.

I really liked this song since the first time I heard it, many years ago; and every time since then, it always makes my heart beat strong. It brings me good memories, although it“s a sad song. Great Frank.
