In a world of glitter and glow, in a world of tinsel and show

The unreal from the real thing is hard to know

I discovered somebody who could be truly worthy and true

Yes, I met my ideal thing when I met you


I see your face before me crowding my every dream

There is your face before me, you are my only theme

It doesn't matter where you are, I can see how fair you are

I close my eyes and there you are.always

If you could share the magic, yes, if you could see me too

There would be nothing tragic in all my dreams of you

Would that my love could haunt you so, knowing I want you so

I can't erase your beautiful face before me
