If your eyes were half as bright, they still would light my way
If your heart were twice as true then you'd be mine today
That's why I often wish that you were half as lovely
Twice as true

I am only one of those who thinks of you and sighs
Just another one who knows your laughter and your lies
I wish that you were someone who was half as lovely
Twice as true

I love you, I love you, too much it seems
For any fool can see
With your heart so crowded with other dreams
How can you dream of me?

Though I pray the Gods of love will make you care somehow
Still I know the odds of love are all against me now
But I might stand a chance if you were half as lovely
Twice as true

I love you too much it seems
With your heart so crowded with other dreams
How can you dream of me?

Maybe if your loveliness were not so heavenly
Maybe then I might possess the only one for me
I wish that you were someone who was half as lovely
Twice as true
