softly music plays in mine ear
whilst waves of laughter bring forth tears
but so i look on you fair and true
look back at me, ere i be blue

tis the play my heart draws near
the words, not verse, that are so dear
i give myself to you in my hands
this, our journey, to wonderland

gallant hearts collide in one
i hope you not let me be undone
on my life, you are a dream
i please you, be you what you seem?

speak you fair and tell me so
if you love me not, ere i'll go
but place a kiss on my gentle hand
and with you always i will stand
