Kelli O'hara – This Nearly Was Mine lyrics

One dream in my heart
One love to be living for
One love to be living for
This nearly was mine

One man for my dream
One partner in paradise
This promise of paradise
This nearly was mine

Close to my heart he came
Only to fly away
Only to fly as day
Flies from moonlight

Now, now I'm alone
Still dreaming of paradise
Still saying that paradise
Once nearly was mine

So clear and deep are my fancies
Of things I wish were true
I'll keep remembering evenings
I wish I'd spent with you

I'll keep remembering kisses
From lips I'll never own
And all the lovely adventures
That we have never known

One man for my dream
One partner in paradise
This promise of paradise
This nearly was mine

Close to my heart he came
Only to fly away
Only to fly as day
Flies from moonlight

Now, now I'm alone
Still dreaming of paradise
Still saying that paradise
Once nearly was mine
