Lyrics

Lonely girl in silk and satin
Love has never known you
Lonely girl all dressed in sadness
Love will never own you

You’re afraid to stop, look, and surrender
You’re afraid of love, torrid or tender
Once, I dreamed we’d share moments of splendor
Wish that I could have shown you

Once, I dreamed we’d share moments of splendor
Wish that I could have shown you

Lonely girl in silk and satin
Wish that I have known you
