Last nite, when my heart burst into a song, You were not by me
So far, my life had been spent in tearful silence and All that I have been longing to tell you,
All my life... came forth then, as if in a sacred burst of melody - Like lightning in the dark
All that time, my dear, You were not anywhere near.
Thought I ...that finally at daybreak, I would sing those words to you...at long last!
The sweet fragrance of flowers wafted in the air, the morning sky was filled with birdsong
But, as hard as I tried then... I could not set those very words to the tune - of the nite before
For the melody never returned, to comply...
When you were nearby.
