Can you be true?
Can this possibly be real?
I knew quite suddenly
Do you sense how I feel?

I long to hear you
Whisper my name
Till you tell me
"My Darling, you may be my man."

There will be days when you must go from my sight
There may be nights when clouds deny us starlight
Only time will tell us
I hope that it speaks gently if it isn't meant to be
Then again
By then we might not be listening so attentively

I will be there
If the days bring torments and trials
To close the distances
Only measured in miles

I long to hold you
All through the night
And to tell you
"My Darling, you make everything seem right"

And then I'll hear you
Calling in my name
And I'll answer
"My Darling, I may be your man"
