One, two

To me you are the loveliest thing I've seen all day
You can't take that away, no, you can't take that away
All my life, I wondered why it couldn't be this way
That was up until today, oh, it had to be this way

Today, wait until the morning comes
Before you slip away
Without permission, without suspicion
Without permission given

You seem to have a friendlier smile than all the rest
Well, I looked and you were best, yeah, I looked at all the rest
You can't imagine passionate words that I would say
If only you would stay, oh, you know you gotta stay

And today, wait until the morning comes
Before you slip away
Without permission, above suspicion
Without permission given

You used to be an early bird but how was I to know
You would leave without shedding a tear
I only want to love you, I'll make a wish
And suddenly I'm glad that I have you here
Oh, I'm glad I have you here today

To me you are the loveliest thing I've seen all day
And you can't take that away, no, you can't take that away
But all my life, I wondered why it couldn't be this way
That was up until today, yeah, it had to be this way

Today, wait until the morning comes
Before you slip away, today, oh
Before you slip away
Without permission, above suspicion
Without permission given to you
