Half As Lovely (Twice As True) Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

If your eyes were half as bright
They still would light my way
If your heart were twice as true
Then you'd be mine today
That's why I often wish
That you were half as lovely, twice as true

I'm only one of those
Who thinks of you and sighs
Just another who knows
Your laughter and lies
I wish that you were someone
Who was half as lovely, twice as true

I love you, I love you, too much it seems
For any fool can see
With your heart so crowded with other dreams
How can you dream of me?

Though I pray the gods of love
Will make you care, somehow
Still I know the odds of love
Are all against me now

But I might stand a chance
If you were half as lovely, twice as true
Maybe, if your loveliness were not so heavenly
Maybe then I might possess the only one for me
I wish you were someone
Who was half as lovely, twice as true
