Early morning whispers to me
I was taken unaware
I remember sunlight creepin'
In the window over there

The day had promised true love
Smiles awaken as we rise
Our golden slumbers long gone
Only you got in my eyes
And now I'll never be the same
'Cause you made me over

If I were a bell, baby, I would ring
Tell the whole world that you are my everything
If I were a bell, baby, you would know
That you are my only lover and it's wonderful
If I were a bell, baby, I would ring each day for you

Early morning it talks to me
I was taken by surprise
I remember fingers floating
As you held me hypnotized

The day had promised true love
Smiles awaken as we share
Our golden slumbers long gone
Only you and I were there
And now, honey, I'm not the same
'Cause you made a brand new me, yes

If I were a bell, baby, I would ring
Tell the whole world that you are my everything
If I were a bell, baby, you would know
That you are my only lover and it's wonderful

If I were a bell, baby, I would ring from the hilltops
Ring from each and every mountainside, yes, oh
If I were a bell, baby, I would ring through every valley
Tell the whole world 'bout these tears of joy I cry
If I were your bell, baby, I would ring each day for you

And no one could ever tell me what to think
To feel, to say or do, listen, sugar
I'm gonna sing about you one more time

If I were a bell, baby, I would ring
Tell the whole world that you are my everything
If I were a bell, baby, you would know
That you are my only lover and it's wonderful
If I were a bell, baby, I would ring each day for you
Just for you, oh yeah, ooh

I guess that's not a mature thing for me to say, baby
I'm just gonna let the bells talk for me
As the flicker turns to flame and passion rises hot
I have no choice but to carry a torch

Come here, honey, let me make it alright
I'm gonna ring for you, baby, you know the part
It's from the heart, it's from my soul [Incomprehensible]
Just for you, just, oh, baby, just for you
