VERSE
Life's dreary for me days seem to be long as years
I look for the sun, but I see none through my tears.
Your heart must be like a stone
To leave me here all alone
When you could make my life worth living
By simply taking what I'm set on giving.
CHORUS
My heart is sad and lonely,
For you I sigh, for you, dear, only.
Why haven't you seen it?
I'm all for you, body and soul!
CHORUS
I spend my days in longing
And wond'ring why it's me you're wronging.
I tell you I mean it,
I'm all for you, body and soul!
BRIDGE
I can't believe it,
It's hard to conceive it
That you'd turn away romance.
Are you pretending,
It looks like the ending
Unless I could have one more chance to prove, dear.
CHORUS
My life a wreck you're making,
You know I'm yours for just the taking;
I'd gladly surrender
Myself to you, body and soul!
