No. 9 - Song - Brandon - "If you were mine alone."

MIDI File

Brandon: Fair face that haunts my dream,
Eyes I love so well,
Would that your secret thoughts
To me, you would tell;
Oh! vainly I strive to read
What you will not own,
Oh! are your smiles for all indeed,
or but for one alone?
If you were mine alone,
Oh! years might come and go,
If you were mine alone,
All life's joy I'd know;
Still in the after years,
The star of Love divine
Would lead me on from dark to dawn,
If you were mine alone.
   
  I always watch your smiles
To other suitors bold,
Who lure you with their wiles,
Or their chains of gold;
There's sometimes a glance for me,
Oh! fleeting but so dear,
Oh! am I only like the rest,
or just a thought more near?
If you were mine alone,
Oh! years might come and go,
If you were mine alone,
All life's joy I'd know;
Still in the after years,
The star of Love divine
Would lead me on from dark to dawn,
If you were mine alone.
