It's not for me to say you love me;
It's not for me to say you'll always care.
Oh, but here for the moment, I can hold you fast
And press you lips to mine
And dream that love will last.

*As far as I can see, this is heaven;
And speaking just for me, it's ours to share.
Perhaps the glow of love will grow
With ev'ry passing day,
Or we may never meet again.
But then, it's not for me to say.

(Instrumental interlude and pick up at *.)

*As far as I can see, this is heaven;
And speaking just for me, it's ours to share.
Perhaps the glow of love will grow
With ev'ry passing day,
Or we may never meet again.
But then, it's not for me to say.

    The above post was a response to being asked by this site what this song meant to me, gene moss. The song pretty much says it. But. There are moments between 2 people in a situation where one cannot speak for the other. Only the other can speak for the other.
