Lyrics
The very thought of you
And I forget to do
The little ordinary things
That everyone ought to do

I`m living in a kind of daydream
I`m happy as a king
And foolish though it may seem to me
That`s everything

The mere idea of you
The longing year for you
You`ll never know how slow the moments go
Till I`m near to you

I see your face in every flower
Your eye in stars above
It`s just the thought of you
The very thought of you
My love

The mere idea of you
The longing year for you
You`ll never know how slow the moments go
Till I`m near to you

I see your face in every flower
Your eye in stars above
It`s just the thought of you
The very thought of you
My love
