I was alone as you came in
With your cool and gracious walk
And your pure and perceptive gaze.
You brought with you your joy,
Your earnest and cheerful laugh
And you made my nights fly by.
You sent my solitude away
And filled an empty space in my heart
With your strong, sweet presence
And the glimpse of Heaven in your eyes.

You’ve turned my world around,
I feel that I am born again.
You’ve made me grow in confidence,
Finding at my disposal
The eloquence sprung from love
Within easy reach my hand,
I’ve shown you the fountain of bliss
And proven that all that matters in my life
Is your strong, sweet presence,
And the glimpse of Heaven in your eyes.

I used to be naive,
I thought I understood
What the essence of love was.
But sweating on strange mattresses,
Panting on musky back seats
Was taking me nowhere fast.
You’ve awakened a better person in me
And I know that I owe it all
To your strong, sweet presence
And the glimpse of Heaven in your eyes.

Had I been a composer,
I would laud you
With the fondest hymn of all.
Had I been an art critic,
I would tell the world
That you are God’s masterpiece.
But I am only a common girl
That has been lucky enough to see
Your strong, sweet presence
And the glimpse of Heaven in your eyes.

Keep me warm,
Keep me warm,
Let your fire envelop me
Until the end of the night.
Keep me warm,
Keep me warm,
Don’t let the cold air in.
Wrap your loving arms tight around me,
Don’t ever let me fly away.
