[Verse 1]
Somewhere in the world the moon is shining,
Shining on the fields and golden hills,
Somewhere near the shadows slowly falling,
Creeping o’er the silent vales and rills.
Oft times I find my heart is longing,
Just to press her dear sweet lips to mine,
Caress her with burning love and kisses,
Yet I wonder will there come a time.

Somewhere the sun is shining,
Somewhere a little rain,
Somewhere a heart is pining,
For love but all in vain,
Somewhere a soul is drifting,
Further and far apart,
Somewhere my love lies dreaming,
Somewhere, a broken heart.

[Verse 2]
If in years to come she should recall me,
Would she love me and still hold me dear?
Would she then forget those cruel words spoken,
When my jealous rage caused her to fear?
Oft times I think she knows I’m longing,
Knows that she could ease my aching heart,
Would she say “Forgive me, oh, my darling,
Do not grieve, for we shall never part.
