Carly Simon – By Myself / I See Your Face Before Me lyrics

(Howard DietzArthur Shwartz)
I'll go my way by myself
This is the end of Romance
I'll go my way by myself
Love is only a dance
I'll face the unknown
I'll build a world of my own
No one knows better than I myself
I'm by myself alone
I see your face before me
Clouding my every dream
There is your face before me
You are my only theme
It doesn't matter where you are
I can se how fair you are
I close my eyes and there you are
Over me
If you could share the magic
If you could see me too
There would be nothing tragic
In all my dreams of you
Would that my love could haunt you so
Knowing I want you so
I can't erase your beautiful face before me
