When you saw me over there,

standing in the morning,

I was coming back to you

with a heart that's a'hoping.

I saw you coming back to me,

your silhouette arriving,

I could hardly believe my eyes

nor hold back my crying.

Though the war was long and cold,

though I felt like dying,

I knew you were waiting here

And it kept me fighting.

Now let us keep holding fast

till we're old and graying

to a love that's sure to last

And pledge our hearts to binding
