This Nearly Was Mine

by Bobby Darin

One dream in my heart, one love to be living for
One love to be living for; this nearly was mine
One girl for my dream, one partner in paradise
This promise of paradise; this nearly was mine
Close to my heart she came, only to fly away
Only to fly as day flies from moonlight
Now, now I'm alone, still dreaming of paradise
Still saying that paradise once nearly was mine
