Lyrics BLUE HEAVEN
AND YOU AND I,
AND SAND
KISSING A MOONLIT SKY.
A DESERT BREEZE
WHISPERING A LULLABY,
ONLY STARS ABOVE YOU
TO SEE I LOVE YOU.
OH, GIVE ME
THAT NIGHT DIVINE,
AND LET MY ARMS
IN YOURS ENTWINE.
THE DESERT SONG,
CALLING,
ITS VOICE
ENTHRALLING,
WILL MAKE YOU MINE.

Lyrics verse:
YOU WENT AWAY,
I LET YOU,
WE BROKE THE TIES THAT BIND
I WANTED TO FORGET YOU
AND LEAVE THE PAST BEHIND.
STILL,
THE MAGIC OF THE NIGHT I MET YOU
SEEMS TO STAY FOREVER IN MY MIND.

Chorus:
THE SKY WAS BLUE,
AND HIGH ABOVE
THE MOON WAS NEW,
AND SO WAS LOVE.
THIS EAGER HEART OF MINE
WAS SINGING:
LOVER, WHERE CAN YOU BE?
YOU CAME AT LAST,
LOVE HAD ITS DAY,
THAT DAY IS PAST.
YOU'VE GONE AWAY.
THIS ACHING HEART OF MINE
IS SINGING:
LOVER, COME BACK TO ME!

WHEN I REMEMBER
EV'RY LITTLE THING
YOU USED TO DO,
I'M SO LONELY.
EV'RY ROAD I WALK ALONG
I'VE WALKED ALONG WITH YOU,
NO WONDER I AM LONELY.

THE SKY WAS BLUE,
THE NIGHT IS COLD,
THE MOON IS NEW,
BUT LOVE IS OLD,
AND WHILE I'M WAITING HERE
THIS HEART OF MINE
IS SINGING:
LOVER, COME BACK TO ME!

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.

Lyrics verse:
LOVE CAME TO ME,
GAY AND TENDER,
LOVE CAME TO ME,
SWEET SURRENDER
LOVE CAME TO ME
IN BRIGHT ROMANTIC SPLENDOR.
FICKLE WAS SHE,
FAITHFUL NEVER
FICKLE WAS SHE
AND CLEVER,
SO WILL IT BE FOREVER,
FOREVER,

Chorus:
SOFTLY, AS IN A MORNING SUNRISE,
THE LIGHT OF LOVE COMES STEALING
INTO A NEW BORN DAY, OH!
FLAMING
WITH ALL THE GLOW OF SUNRISE,
A BURNING KISS IS SEALING
THE VOW THAT ALL WILL BETRAY.

FOR THE PASSIONS
THAT THRILL LOVE
AND LIFT YOU
HIGH TO HEAVEN,
ARE THE PASSIONS
THAT KILL LOVE
AND LET YOU FALL
TO HELL!
SO ENDS EACH STORY.

SOFTLY, AS IN AN EVENING SUNSET,
THE LIGHT THAT GAVE YOU GLORY
WILL TAKE IT ALL AWAY!

Lyrics verse:
YOU WHO HAVE DREAMS,
IF YOU ACT THEY WILL COME TRUE!
TO TURN YOUR DREAMS TO A FACT,
IT'S UP TO YOU!
IF YOU HAVE THE SOUL
AND THE SPIRIT,
NEVER FEAR IT,
YOU'LL SEE IT THROUGH.
HEARTS CAN INSPIRE OTHER HEARTS
WITH THEIR FIRE.
FOR THE STRONG OBEY
WHEN A STRONG MAN
SHOWS THEM THE WAY!

Chorus:
GIVE ME SOME MEN
WHO ARE STOUTHEARTED MEN
WHO WILL FIGHT
FOR THE RIGHT
THEY ADORE.
START ME WITH TEN,
WHO ARE STOUTHEARTED MEN
AND I'LL SOON GIVE YOU
TEN THOUSAND MORE.
OH!
SHOULDER TO SHOULDER
AND BOLDER AND BOLDER
THEY GROW
AS THEY GO
TO THE FORE!
THEN THERE'S NOTHING
IN THE WORLD
CAN HALT
OR MAR A PLAN,
WHEN STOUTHEARTED MEN
CAN STICK TOGETHER
MAN TO MAN!

Lyrics SWEETHEART,
SWEETHEART,
SWEETHEART.

AH, LOVE IS SO SWEET
IN THE SPRINGTIME,
WHEN BLOSSOMS ARE FRAGRANT
IN MAY.
NO YEARS THAT ARE COMING
CAN BRING TIME
TO MAKE ME FORGET DEAR,
THIS DAY.
I LOVE YOU
IN LIFE'S GRAY DECEMBER,
THE SAME
AS I LOVE YOU TODAY.
MY HEART EVER YOUNG
WILL REMEMBER
THE THRILL IT KNEW,
THAT DAY IN MAY.

SWEETHEART,
SWEETHEART,
SWEETHEART,
WILL YOU LOVE ME EVER?
WILL YOU REMEMBER
THIS DAY?
WHEN WE WERE HAPPY
IN MAY,
MY DEAREST ONE.

SWEETHEART,
SWEETHEART,
SWEETHEART,
THOUGH OUR PATHS MAY SEVER
TO LIFE'S LAST FAINT EMBER
WILL YOU REMEMBER?
SPRINGTIME,
LOVETIME,
MAY,
SPRINGTIME,
LOVETIME,
MAY.
