I'll see you standing there 
Mmh, I'll lock my heart 
To any other caress 
I'll never say yes 
To a new love affair 
I'll close my eyes 
To everything that's gay 
If you're not there 
To share each lovely day 
And through the years 
Those moments 
When we're far apart 
I close my eyes 
Mmh, and see you with my heart
I'll close my eyes
To everything that's gay 
But if you're not there 
To share each lovely day 
And through the years 
Those moments 
When we're far apart 
I'll close my eyes 
Oh, and see you with my heart
