You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
You knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I could really care for
Then suddenly they’ll appear before me
The only one my arms could ever hold
I heard someone whisper “Please adore me”
And when I looked my moon had turned to gold.
Now I’m no longer alone
I have a dream in my heart
I have a love of my own
