Emile:
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.

So clear and depart my fancies
Of things I wish were true
I keep remembering evenings
I wish I spent with you.

I keep remembering kisses
From lips I've never owned,
And all that lovely adventures
That we have never known.

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!
