BRIGHT EYES I LOVE YOU SO
(Frank A. Ryan, 1919)
I'm wondering if dreams come true,
Last night my love, I dreamed of you;
I dreamed that I kissed you
caressed you and blessed you,
you wonder why I love you so,
The reason I will tell to you
the many charms about you
tell me ne'er to doubt you
surely you'll be true.
A dream, they say is but a dream,
When things are not just as they seem,
You'll always be near me
forever you'll cheer me,
my heart cries out each night and day
And longs for you when you're away
dearie trusting you'll remember
that love's burning ember means I love yo so.
Your bright eyes are like the sunshine tow'ring from above,
The birds, the trees, the perfumed flowers blend your songs of love,
It seems the gates of Heav'n are opened with your smiling face,
The world's a glow for now
you know that's just why I love you so.
