Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Once I pass'd through a populous city imprinting my brain for future
        use with its shows, architecture, customs, traditions,
Yet now of all that city I remember only a woman I casually met
        there who detain'd me for love of me,
Day by day and night by night we were together—all else has long
        been forgotten by me,
I remember I say only that woman who passionately clung to me,
Again we wander, we love, we separate again,
Again she holds me by the hand, I must not go,
I see her close beside me with silent lips sad and tremulous.
