This heart of mine is in your keeping,
I've known it ever since we met.
It will be yours awake or sleeping,
But just in case you ever should forget;
I shall be loving you through all eternity,
But if you don't believe me, wait and see.
My heart will still be true when stars on high
Have flickered out like little candles in the sky;
And when the evergreen has withered on the bough,
I still will feel the same as I do now,
These little words I know can never show how true I'll be,
But if you don't believe me, just you wait and see.
