Only You and You Alone

Only you have the power

to bring me to heaven and back

the song I sing to you

has no words

only my heart beats

in rhythm


My feelings for you

only you

give me wings to fly

when you are near

so close to me

and dear


When you go away

you take the sun

the joy from my days

and I wither like a flower

so very thirsty for love

only you can make me live again


You know how to make the stars

in the night sky shine brighter

how to make the moon

illuminate a golden glow

dancing with you

the moon and the stars

seem to play a symphony

a symphony of love

just for you and for me


Never pass me by

without a brilliant smile

for in your smile are the roots of my happiness

and in your love

like a flower

I blossom and grow
