[Verse 1]
If you’re alone,
And never know,
Someone’s kisses,
Don’t pine away,
There’ll come a day,
You’ll know what real bliss is.

[Verse 2]
Someday a heart,
Now far apart,
Will beat for you,
You will rejoice,
Hearing a voice,
Whisper that I love you

Some day, Some day, someone true,
Will know, you’re so lonely.
Someday, someone just as blue,
Will sigh “Be my only”
And someday tears will turn to laughter,
