WHITE ROSES FROM ATHENS – Until the white rose blooms again you must leave me, leave me lonely. So goodbye my love until then until the white rose blooms again. The summer days are ending in the valley and soon the time will come when we must be apart, but like the rose that comes back with the springtime, you will return to me when springtime comes around, until the white rose blooms again. You must leave me, leave me lonely. So goodbye my love until then until the white rose blooms again, until the white rose blooms again you must leave me, leave me lonely. So goodbye my love till then, till the white rose blooms again. Goodbye until then. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyloJbqHq6s
