This song is by Mel Tormé.

We used to dwell in love's own palace
A palace of dreams come true
Now that we're through, I bear no malice
Though we've called it a day, all I can say is

Thanks for all the lovely delights I found in your embrace
I'm thankful, though I know it's ending all too soon

And thanks for unforgettable nights I never can replace
And memories that linger like a haunting tune

It is better to have loved you, dear, and lost
Than never to have loved at all
Yes, it's better, for no matter what the cost
I held the world in sway, an Emperor for a day

And thanks again for taking me on the road to paradise
We lost our way, but still I must convey my thanks
