My heart is sad and lonely
For you I pine, for you dear only
Why haven`t you seen it?
I`m all for you, body and soul

I spend my days in longing
And wondering why it`s me you`re wronging
I tell you I mean it
I`m all for you, body and soul

I can`t believe it, it`s hard to conceive it
That you`d turn away romance.
Are you pretending? It looks like the ending 
Unless I can have
Just one more chance, dear

My life a wreck you`re making
My heart is yours for just the taking
I`ll gladly surrender
Myself to you, body and soul
