You've given me a true love and ev'ry day I thank you love,
For a feeling that's so new, so inviting, so exciting.
Whenever you are near, I Hear A Symphony,
A tender melody pulling me closer, closer to your arms.
Then suddenly, oo, your lips are touching mine.
A feeling so divine 'til I leave the past behind.
I'm lost in a world made for you and me.
Oo love me.
Whenever you are near I Hear A Symphony play sweet and tenderly
Ev'ry time your lips meet mine my baby.
Baby, baby, I feel a joy within,
Don't let this feeling end,
Let it go on and on and on now baby.
Baby, baby, those tears that fill my eyes,
I care not for myself but for those
Who've never felt the joy we've felt.
Whenever you are near,
I Hear A Symphony each time you speak to me
I hear a tender rhapsody of love, love.
Baby, baby, as you stand up holding me
Whispering how much you care,
A thousand violins fill the air now.
Baby, baby, don't let this moment end,
Keep standing close to me,
Oo so close to me, baby, baby.
Baby, baby, I Hear A Symphony, a tender melody.
Ah it goes on and on and on and on and
on and on and on and on and
on and on and on and on and
