No. 6 - Song - Marie - "If only you were mine."

MIDI File

Marie: What ever fate that after years may bring to me,
Of grief or care, my life were joy alone,
If only I could have your voice to sing to me,
If only I could call your heart my own.
Could I but know that you would be beside me, dear,
If sunshine gladden or if shadows fall,
Oh! then, what ever fortune might betide me,
My life would happy be for love, for love is all.
If only you were mine, dear,
Then all the world were fair;
When my eyes look in thine, dear,
My world, my life are there,
Life's morn is glad and bright, dear,
It's morn of fair sunshine.
And starlit were the night, dear,
If only you were mine.

I would not ask another joy to fall to me;
I would not pray for other boon than this,
Thy true and tender love were all in all to me,
The heaven of my soul is in thy kiss.
The forest voices keep their sweetest songs for thee,
For thee the wild rose blossoms in the glen.
Come back to me, my darling, for I love thee,
Come back to me and we shall never part again.
If only you were mine, dear,
Then all the world were fair;
When my eyes look in thine, dear,
My world, my life are there,
Life's morn is glad and bright, dear,
It's morn of fair sunshine.
And starlit were the night, dear,
If only you were mine.
