In her eyes there was moonlight, and the rose in her hair,
In my arms there was no one, so I put her there;
On her lips was a promise, in my heart was a prayer,
When I finally went I went home with the scent
Of the rose in her hair.

On her face there was beauty, a picture to see,
In her arms there was someone she loved more than me;
In my mind was a vision so lifelike and clear,
When I finally went I went home with the scent
Of the rose in her hair.

And then I awakened, it was only a dream,
For she lay there beside me so gently asleep;
As I kissed her in slumber, I whispered a prayer,
And peacefully went back to sleep with the scent
Of the rose in her hair.

As I kissed her in slumber, I whispered a prayer,
And peacefully went back to sleep with the scent
Of the rose in her hair.
