If you were mine
I could be a ruler of kings
And if you were mine
I could do such wonderful things

I'd say to a star
Stop where you are
Light up my lover's way
And every star above you
Would obey, say
If you were mine

I would live for your love alone
To kneel at your shrine
I would give up all that I own
Yes even my heart
Even my life

I'd trade it all for you
And think I was lucky too
If you were mine
