Lyrics Edit

One dream in my heart, one love to be living for,
One love to be living for, this nearly was mine.
One girl for my dream, one partner in paradise,
This promise of paradise, this nearly was mine.
Close to my heart she came, only to fly away,
Only to fly as day flies from moonlight.
Now, now I'm alone, still dreaming of paradise,
Still saying that paradise once nearly was mine.

How clear and deep are my fancies,
Of things I wish were true,
I'll keep remembering evenings,
I wish I'd spent with you,
I 'll keep remembering kisses from lips I'll never own,
And all the lovely adventures,
That we have never known.

Now, now I'm alone,
Still dreaming of paradise,
Still saying that paradise, once nearly was mine.
