Tag: Love / Waltz

Lover, when I'm near you
And I hear you speak my name
Softly in my ear you breathe a flame

Lover, when we're dancing
Keep on glancing in my eyes
Till love's own entrancing music dies

All of my future is in you
Your every plan I design
Promise you'll always continue to be mine

Hey lover, please be tender
When your tender fears depart
Lover, I surrender to my heart

I say "The devil is in you"
And to resist you I try
But if you didn't continue I would die

Lover, please be tender
When your tender fears depart
Lover, I surrender to my heart

He'll be saying
gently swaying
I'll obey
like two children playing
in the..

He'll be my lord and my master
I'll be a slave to the last.
he'll make my heart go faster-

when tou take me
and awake me
I will know,
lover you can make me
love you so.
