It seems like a year
since I`ve seen you dear
yet I know it`s been only a day
yet the hours seem long
and the world goes wrong
for it`s empty with you away . . .
And I wake from each dream
of your loveliness,
to sink once again into loneliness,
and I`d give all the world for just one caress,
I`m lonesome, I guess, that`s all!
The faces I see don`t appear to me
for it`s your face I long for today,
with it`s wonderful smile
that makes life worthwhile,
for it drives all my cares away . . .
And I dream of your lips
and your eyes of blue,
and wonder if your heart is dreaming too?
And my own heart is cryin` the whole day through
I`m lonesome, for you, that`s all!
