OUR LAST SONG TOGETHER – by Harold Greenfield

In 1970 Harold Greenfield wrote two last songs for Neil Sedaka.  One was “Love Will Keep Us Together” and the other I have blogged here.  I grew up listening to this song over and over.  My husband laughs at me for loving this song but I believe it is what nurtured my love for words.  Harold Greenfield died in 1986 a few days short of his 50th birthday, and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame five years later.  I believe he would have been an amazing person to know.

Days of devils, kings and clowns

Angel songs and birthday tunes

Valentines and wishing wells

Magic stairways, moods, and Junes

Silly rhymes and monkeyshines

Pictures on a stage

Round and round the records go

Time to turn the page

 

This will be our last song together

Words will only make us cry

This will be our last song together

There´s no other way to say good-bye

 

Misty faces, far off places

Came and danced across the stage

Sha na na´s and Doo be down´s

The sounds that chased away the blues

Yesterday is yesterday

The past is dead and gone

Nostalgia just gets in the way

Let´s stop hanging on

 

This will be our last song together

Words will only make us cry

This will be our last song together

There´s no other way to say good-bye

 

Now we go our separate ways

And the world we used to know

Scratchy worn out 45´s

An echo on the radio

Tra la days are over now

Those days of you and me

Now we know that breaking up is

Really hard to do

 

This will be our last song together

Words will only make us cry

This will be our last song together

There´s no other way to say good-bye

 

There´s no other way to say good-bye…
