Who Else On Earth

There will be songs to comfort you... And hands to hold your
hand... And there will be enchanting lips... That say they
understand... But who will keep you company... When
months and years go by... And who will smooth your silver
hair... And listen to your sigh?...And who will kiss your
tears away... And be forever true... As lovingly and happily
... as I would promise you?...I may not offer you the world
... Or half its wealth and fame... And I may give you nothing
more ... Than just my common name... But I will hunger
every night... And suffer every day ... To bless your heart
and fill your dreams ... With joy in every way.
