The scene is set for dreaming Love's knocking at the door
But oh my heart, I'm reluctant to start For we've been fooled before

The night is like a lovely tune

For they both give the very same sensation When you are lost in the magic of a kiss

Her lips are much too close to mine
Beware, my foolish heart
But should our eager lips combine Then let the fire start 
For this time, it isn't fascination Or a dream that will fade and fall apart It's love, this time it's love, my foolish heart

For this time, it isn't fascination Or a dream that will fade and fall apart It's love, this time it's love, my foolish heart
