I wish I could fall in love,
though it only leads to trouble, oh I know it does.
Still I'd fool myself and gladly just to feel I was
in love, in love.

I wish I could feel my heartbeat rise
and gaze into some gentle warm excited eyes,
and give myself as truly as an arrow flies
in windless skies.

Oh, I remember you in the TV light
holding you close to me where we lay,
and now I wish I knew some of those softer nights,
whispering quietly, feeling you turn to me.

It was only last night in the winter dark,
I dreamed of how you loved in all your innocence,
and I've never known a softer warmer feeling since
or a truer heart.

But maybe these dreams are leading me;
maybe love is not as gentle as my memory;
maybe time and wistful half-remembered fantasies
are the greatest part.

Oh, but I remember you in the TV light
holding you close to me where we lay,
and now I wish I knew some of those softer nights
whispering quietly, feeling you turn to me.

Wish I could feel my heartbeat rise
and gaze into some gentle warm excited eyes,
and give myself as truly as an arrow flies
in windless skies.

Oh, I wish I could fall in love
though it only leads to trouble, oh I know it does.
Still I'd fool myself and gladly just to feel I was
In love.
