When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

I'll be seeing you

In all the old familiar places

That this heart of mine embraces

All day through

In that small cafe

The park across the way

The children's carousel

The chestnut trees, the wishing well

 

I'll be seeing you

In every lovely summer's day

In everything that's light and gay

I'll always think of you that way

 

[Chorus - Durante Version]

I'll find you in the mornin' sun

And when the night is new

I'll be looking at the moon

But I'll be seeing you

 

[Chorus - Durante Version]

I'll see you

In that small cafe

The park across the way

The children's carousel

The chestnut trees, the wishing well

 

I'll be seeing you

In every lovely summer's day

In everything that's light and gay

I'll always think of you that way

I'll find you in the mornin' sun

And when the night is new

I'll be looking at the moon

But I'll be seeing you

 

[Chorus - Durante Version]

I'll be seeing you

I'll be seeing you

- "I'll Be Seeing You,"
