Lyrics

May I never see the sun go down,
May I never feel the falling rain,
If the love that I declare
Isn’t all that’s right and fair,
May I never, may I never love again!

May I never see the blue of the sky,
Nor the moon and stars down Lovers’ Lane;
May I never live a day
If I don’t mean what I say,
May I never, may I never love again!

Sweetheart, when I’m with you,
I’m not a foolish pretender;
Sweetheart, if you love me too,
All I possess I surrender!

May I never feel your tender lips,
May you never take my love in vain;
You’re the answer to my prayer,
But if your love isn’t there,
May I never, no I’ll never love again!

Sweetheart, when I’m with you,
I’m not a foolish pretender;
Sweetheart, if you love me too,
All I possess I surrender!

May I never feel your tender lips,
May you never take my love in vain;
You’re the answer to my prayer,
But if your love isn’t there,
