The first time I saw you,
I knew at a glance
I was meant to be yours, yours alone;
As I stood before you,
My heart seemed to dance,
And I prayed you would call me your own.

When I look in your eyes,
I am thrilled to the skies,
And I feel like a king on a throne,
The first time I saw you,
I knew at a glance
I was meant to be yours, yours alone.
