About We Mustn’t Say Goodbye
“We Mustn’t Say Goodbye” was written for the 1943 movie Stage Door Canteen and was nominated for an Academy Award for best original song.


In dreams we’ll always be together
Beneath the moonlit sky
We mustn’t say goodbye

Each night I’ll push aside the mountains
I’ll drain the oceans dry
We mustn’t say goodbye

I promise you that when the postman rings
My heart will be inside
The envelope he brings

Oh, don’t you know the memories we gathered
Can never, never die
We mustn’t say goodbye
