[Verse 1]
Although you leave me all forsaken,
When this poor heart of mine you’ve taken,
Sometime I know your love will waken,
And life for me will dawn a-new,
Sometime when sorrow comes to grieve you,
When friends you think are true deceive you,
To me at last you’ll turn,
And then dear heart You’ll learn,
The mighty love I have for you.

Sometime you’ll love me Dearie, yes Dearie,
Sometime we’ll happy be,
Sometime with heart grown sad and weary,
I know you’ll come to me,
Sometime we’ll be together,
Sometime my dreams, dear, will all come true, then I’ll caress you, bless you,
To my heart I’ll press you,
Sometime dear You’ll love me too.

[Verse 2]
Dear heart it’s hard to live without you,
By night and day I dream about you,
My hopes will never let me doubt you,
Sometime you will be mine alone,
With love for you my heart is beating,
The whole day long it keeps repeating,
“True love will find a way,
She’ll come to you some day,
Sometime she’ll be your very own.”
