My heart is aching for someone
And you are that someone
You know the truth of my story
You must believe what you see

I, too, may someday love someone
From somewhere there'll come one
One who will hear the same story
That you're telling me.

Wanting you, every day I am wanting you
Every night I am longing to
Hold you close to my eager breast

Wanting love, in that heaven I'm dreaming of
Makes that heaven seem far above
Any hope that I'll gain my quest

Dreams are vain, but I cling to the
Merest chance that you may hear me
Dreams are vain, for whenever I wake
I never find you near me

Wanting you, nothing else in this world will do
In this world you are all that I adore,
All I adore.
