You and your smile
Hold strange invitation
Somehow it seems
We've shared our dreams
Oh, Lord, but where?
Time after time
In a room full of strangers
Out of the blue
Suddenly you appear
Wherever I go
You're the glow of temptation
Clumsing my way
In the gray of the dawn
And always your eyes smile
That strange invitation
Then you're gone
Tell me where
Oh, where have you gone?
How long must I stay
In a world of illusion?
But where are you?
You're so near
Yet we're so far a apart
Hoping you'll say with a warm invitation
Where have you been, darling
Come into my heart
