Verse:
When you held your hand to my heart,
Dear, you did some thing grand to my heart,
And we played the scene to perfection,
Though we didn't have time to rehearse.
Since you took control of my life,
You have become the whole of my life,
When you are away it's awful,
And when you are with me it's worse:
 
Chorus:
Lover, when I'm near you,
And I hear you speak my name,
Softly in my ear you breathe a flame.
(4 measure instrumental)

Lover, when were dancing,
Keep on glancing in my eyes,
Till loves own entrancing music dies.
(4 measure instrumental)
 
Bridge:
All of my future is in you,
You're ev'ry plan I design,
Promise you'll always continue to be mine.
(4 measure instrumental)
 
Last Chorus:
Lover, please be tender,
When your tender fears depart,
Lover, I surrender to my heart.
(4 measure instrumental)
