lyrics

LOVE, BE TRUE (MARGARET)

Oh, so it’s come to this: one locked-and-loaded kiss --
I think I love you.

Lost in those deep eyes of gray, surely a girl could stray
In love with you, love with you, love with you.

Deep as a starless sky, longer than monarchs fly
Is my love for you.

So, riddle me something true, some secret no one knew,
And I will love you, I will love you, I will love you.

Blink! Summer has turned to fall; my heart’s stentorian call
Claims love for you,

So see now how the barley sways, I could spend all my days,
Just loving you, loving you, loving you.

Oh, love. Oh, my love. Oh, my love!

Were my love lost at sea, he would return for me
All painted blue,

And I would do the very same, lungs nourished on his name:
O, love, be true! Love, be true! Love, be true.
