Lyrics to As Time Goes By

Lyrics to the song As Time Goes By as recorded by Bryan Ferry.

Words & Music by Hupfield

You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
as time goes by
And when two lovers woo
They still say "I love you"
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
as time goes by
Moonlight and love songs never out of date
Hearts full of passion, jealousy, and hate
Woman needs man, and man must have his mate
That no one can deny
It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die
The world will always welcome lovers
as time goes by


As Time Goes By
