What a thrill you are
What a sight to see
Something the eyes of mortals have no right to see

Or walk away and worship from afar
In the lonely night
You would haunt my heart
And I would pray that someday you might want my heart
And I'd have to live my whole life through
Lost in loveliness, the loveliness of you
