lyrics

When I'll be old
And sat with you by the fire
This story will be told, as I
Look at you, and never tire

Of your beautiful, lovely eyes
That have saved my life;
I'll be thanking the skies
That you are my wife ...

You have loved me so
I don't know what I have done
To deserve you, though ...
When we dance, we're one ...

You have saved my soul
From the ghosts of the past ...
I can hold you close
And sigh softly: "at last ..."

But for now, it's just me,
Alone, by this fire
In my eyes, there's pain
From some past desire ...

To meet you, I haven't yet;
And as I wait to be saved
From myself, I let
My soul fly ahead

to when ... I will have said:

You have loved me so
I don't know what I have done
To deserve you, though ...
When we dance, we're one ...

You have saved my soul
From the ghosts of the past ...
I can hold you close
And sigh softly: "at last ..."

***

Please don't tarry much
My hair's already grey,
I am no great catch,
I'm getting older every day ...

But if you're out there
Please don't turn me down
Hope you answer my prayer
Before in tears I drown ...
