"Chinese Lanterns" as written by and Mackendrick/seals/crofts....
When we were children we played together
underneath the chinese lanterns
their light would show our shadows on the wall
we were promised for each other
by our secret star above
but came a stranger and now I have no love

Chinese lanterns still remind me
and show the memories where to find me

He was standing by his new love
tried to keep my tears inside
but I just broke down and cried
now I'll wait here for my one love
underneath the chinese lantern
blowing in the night please guide him back to me
chinese lantern please guide him back to me
