WHEN YOU COME, BACK TO ME

A happy day is dawning
I know not when it will be;
But I know it will be happy
When you come back to me.

I will be impatiently waiting
With a heart just as full as can be
For your arms to be thrown around me,
When you come back to me.

Our kiss of re-union will carry us off
On the wings of ecstasy;
For a moment forget those around us;
When you come back to me.

The dark dreary months will fade away,
As into a fathomless sea,
In the joy of being together,
When you come back to me.
