Heaven sends 
A song through its doors 
Just as if it seems to know 
I'm exclusively yours 
Knowing this 
I feel but one way 
You will understand too 
In these words that I say 
I'll close my eyes 
To everyone but you 
And when I do 
I'll see you standing there 
I'll lock my heart 
To any other caress 
I'll never say yes 
To a new love affair 
Then I'll close my eyes 
To everything that's gay 
If you are not there 
Oh, to share each lovely day 
And through the years 
In those moments 
When we're far apart 
Don't you know I'll close my eyes 
And I'll see you with my heart
