Once the world was dressed in green and gold
And life was like a rose that's about to unfold
I only fought the wind and only answered to the sun
Love came with the dawn to waken everyone
Wish I could live those days again
Wish now was then

Then the world stood still in early May
Unbound and free were we just ourselves to obey
Then time was not a thing we were afraid to lose
And words were only words we never thought to choose
Wish I could live those days again
Wish now was then

Wish I could live those days again
Wish now was then

Music by: John Barry
Lyrics: Don Black
original composition "Vivre et Mourir" from the motion picture "Mary Queen of Scots"
