Only You


I would not ever say these words... To anyone but you...
Because to any other heart... My words would not be true
... They are the words I whisper, dear ... To you, and you
alone ... To tell you that I love you and ... I want you for
my own ... You are the only one for me ... As long as I may
live ... And only unto you is all ... The love that I can give
... I only hope you will accept ... The promise of my heart
...And give your promise in return ... That we will never
part ... There is no other one in life ... Who means so much
to me ... Oh, let me take you in my arms ... For all eternity.

Only You


I would not ever say these words... To anyone but you...
Because to any other heart... My words would not be true
... They are the words I whisper, dear ... To you, and you
alone ... To tell you that I love you and ... I want you for
my own ... You are the only one for me ... As long as I may
live ... And only unto you is all ... The love that I can give
... I only hope you will accept ... The promise of my heart
...And give your promise in return ... That we will never
part ... There is no other one in life ... Who means so much
to me ... Oh, let me take you in my arms ... For all eternity.
