Lyrics

In the heart's early dream,
In those fond days of youth,
When we are what we seem,
And when Love is all truth....
When we are what we seem
And when Love is all truth is all truth...
Oh how oft hast thou sigh'd
Thou wert mine, only mine,
Thou wert mine, only mine...
To a heart that replied I am thine, only thine
To a heart that replied I am thine...
I am thine only thine.

2nd verse
When those days pass'd away
Still they left the delight
Of beholding their ray
As intense and as bright
Of beholding their ray
As intense and as bright...
Of beholding their ray
As intense and as bright
As when first thy lip sigh'd
Thou wert mine, only mine
Thou wert mine only mine
To a heart that replied
I am thine only thine
To a heart that replied,
I am thine...
I am thine, only thine only thine.
