When the day fades away into twilight
The moon is my light of love
In the night, I am quite a romancer
I find an answer above
To being me consolation, you’re my inspiration
This is my imagination.
Time on my hands, you in my arms
Nothing but love in view, then you fall
Once and for all, I’ll see my dreams come true
Moments to spare for someone you care for
Our love affair for two
With time on my hands and you in my arms
And love in my heart all for you.
