Lyrics I HAVE HEARD ALL
YOU'VE BEEN SAYING,
YET I WILL LOVE IN MY OWN WAY.
LONELY AS A DESERT BREEZE,
I MAY WONDER WHERE I PLEASE,
YET I KEEP ON LONGING
JUST TO REST A WHILE.
WHERE A SWEETHEART'S
TENDER EYES
TAKE THE PLACE OF SAND AND SKIES,
ALL THE WORLD FORGOTTEN
IN ONE WOMAN'S SMILE.

ONE ALONE,
TO BE MY OWN,
I ALONE,
TO KNOW HER CARESSES.
ONE TO BE,
ETERNALLY,
THE ONE
MY WORSHIPPING SOUL
POSSESSES.

AT HER CALL,
I'D GIVE MY ALL,
ALL MY LIFE
AND ALL MY LOVE
ENDURING.
THIS WOULD BE
A MAGIC WORLD TO ME
IF SHE WERE MINE ALONE.

ONE ALONE,
TO BE MY OWN,
I ALONE,
TO KNOW HER CARESSES.
ONE TO BE,
ETERNALLY,
THE ONE
MY WORSHIPPING SOUL
POSSESSES.
