Lyrics

Calling, calling dear
Loved one can’t you hear?
Each throbbing part of my faithful heart,
Come to me, make all my sighs disappear.

Sweetheart, you must know
That I love you so.
Awake or sleeping, my heart’s in your keeping,
and calling to you soft and low.

My wonderful one
Whenever I’m dreaming
Love’s love light a-gleaming I see

My wonderful one
How my arms ache to hold here
To cuddle and fold near to me

Just you, only you
In the shadowy twilight
In silvery moonlight
There’s none like you
I adore you
My life I live for you
My wonderful, wonderful one
