Written by Sedaka and Howie Greenfield
They first offered it to The Fleetwoods,
Who charted it at only #84 in 1959 as the flip of their smash "Mr. Blue"
Sedaka then covered his own song in 1960 and took it to # 17.
You are the answer to my lonely prayer
You are an angel from above
I was so lonely till you came to me
With the wonder of your love.
I don't know how I ever lived before
You are my life, my destiny
Oh my darling, I love you so
You mean everything to me
If you should ever, ever go away
There would be lonely tears to cry
The sun above would be never shine again
There would be teardrops in the sky
So hold me close and never let me go
And say our love will always be
Oh, my darling, I love you so
You mean everything to me
So hold me close and never let me go
And say our love will always be
Oh, my darling, I love you so
You mean everything to me
