my love is true (love song) lyrics – donovan

my heart is like a flower for my love,
that blooms as i hold her tenderly.
but it’s rooted deep in fear
just as heavy as a tear
that whisper low, her lover is not for me.

my love is true, for her it is true,
and i pray that her love is mine.

my love is like the first star of the night
that brightened up the world’s first darkness,
like love stories very old
a million times been told
her eyes are worth more than bright diamonds.

my love is true, for her it is true,
and i pray that her love is mine.

my love is true, for her it is true,
and i pray that her love is mine.

alone at night in my dark lonesome room
i like awake a-sadly dreaming.
although you’re not very near
i still i can hear
your soft and tender heart a-beating.

my love is true, for her it is true,
and i pray that her love is mine.

my love is true, for her it is true,
and i pray that her love is mine
