A very precious love
Is what you are to me
A stairway to a star
A night in Shangri-La
Of ecstasy

Lanterns of gold
Lanterns of blue
Twinkle in the shadows
While I dance with you

An echo in the wind
(An echo in the wind)
Across the summer lake
(Across the summer lake)

Is saying you should know
That lanterns lose their glow
And hearts can break
(And hearts can break)

So hold me close, my darling
Then kiss me tenderly
And give your precious love
Your very precious love to me

So hold me close, my darling
Then kiss me tenderly
And give your precious love
Your very precious love to me
(My very precious love)
