VP_007617 Verse 1Let me put my arms close around you, Dear, I am so glad I have found you I had almost ceased to be Quite sure that you would come to me. All my dreams have been full of yearning For the day when fortune in turning Would send you to me Always to be close, oh so close to my heart. Chorus 1All my life I've waited for this Just to feel the touch of your kiss Just to be true to someone like you It seem's I've been waiting for ages and ages; Waiting, So patiently Just to hold you close, dear, to me, Just to be true to someone like you I have been waiting for this.
