This Nearly Was Mine Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

One dream in my heart, one love to be living for
One love to be living for, this nearly was mine
One girl for my dream, one partner in paradise
This promise of paradise, this nearly was mine

Close to my heart she came, only to fly away
Only to fly as day flies from moonlight
Now, now I'm alone, still dreaming of paradise
Still saying that paradise once nearly was mine

How clear and deep are my fancies
Of things I wish were true
I'll keep remembering evenings
I wish I'd spent with you

I'll keep remembering kisses
From lips I'll never own
And all the lovely adventures
That we have never known

Now, now I'm alone
Still dreaming of paradise
Still saying that paradise
Once nearly was mine

Songwriters
R. RODGERS, O. HAMMERSTEIN II
