If I could see your tender smile
And hold you close just a little while
I'd want this love to last forever

And if one day your trembling hand
Would touch my lips, I'll understand
And want this love to last forever

Why, why, why won't you tell me
Tell me the way you feel
Why, why, why, why, why
Why, why won't you hold me
And tell me that this love is real

If I look in your eyes and see
That you have shared a tear for me
I'd want this love to last forever

But then, maybe I'll get tired
Of trying to make you love me too
And then you'll want
This love to last forever

Why, why, why won't you tell me
Tell me the way you feel
Why, why, why, why, why
Why won't you hold me
And tell me if this love is real

If I look in your eyes and see
That you have shared a tear for me
I'd want this love to last forever

But then, maybe I'll get tired
Of trying to make you love me too
And then you'll want this
Love to last forever
