I wish I could sing you a tender love song,
Or write you a letter that's ten pages long,
I wish I could tell you how I really feel,
This aching to touch you is growing so real;
The warmth in the smile that you're flashing at me
Goes straight to my heart, and can you not see
That I long to kiss you and hold you so near,
For my eyes are answering your eyes, my dear;
Can you read the message my heart sends your way?
Can it be the same that yours tries to say?
I wish that our hearts and our heads could agree;
I wish I could tell you what you mean to me.
