Maria, you're the only one hat ever understood the way I feel
Maria, you're the only one to me that was ever real
And yet you bid me go because inside your heart you know I cannot stay
But keep a light in your window burnin' little girl, I'm comin' home some day.

Maria, if I only had the power to turn back the hands of time
I'd spread my wings around you and little girl, I'd make you mine
'Cause all you ever wanted was to love me in your plain and honest way
So keep a light in your window burnin' little girl, I'm comin' back some day.

Oh, Maria, you gave me the precious gift of love that I have ever known
And then you kissed me gently for when I opened up my eyes, you were gone
And now I'm gonna lose the only good thing that ever came my way
So keep a light in your window burnin' little girl, I'm comin' back some day.

Keep a light in your window burnin' little girl, I'm comin' back some day...
