REMEMBER ME (When The Candle Lights Are Gleaming) - Scott Wiseman.
Recorded by Lulu Belle and Scotty Wiseman
(1940), sung by The Radio Gang

Remember Me when the candle lights are gleaming
Remember Me at the close of a long, long day
It would be so sweet when all alone I'm dreaming
Just to know you still Remember Me.

The sweetest songs belong to lovers in the gloamin
The sweetest days are those that used to be
The saddest words I ever heard, were words of parting
When you said "Sweetheart, Remember Me."

You told me once that you were mine alone forever
And I was yours til the end of eternity
But all those vows are broken now and we will never
Be the same except in memory.

A brighter face may take my place when we're apart, dear
A sweeter smile, a love more bold and free
But in the end, fair weather friends may break your heart, dear
If they do, sweetheart, Remember Me.

The sentimental value of this item was so great, that the children were not allowed to touch it. Scott was touched by it, however, and during a bout of homesickness, wrote a song based on the lettering on the cup, which read “Remember Me.” More...
