Lyric:

I read so many tales of love,
I di'n't believe them true,
until the day when heav'n above
first let me gaze at you.
So I suppose it's love's revenge
that I should long so much
for one so fair, so rare,
but one I dare not touch.
I think of you and suddenly start
to sing you the song
that's been long in my heart;
I sing in vain.
You're too far away.
Why should I dream of wonderful nights
when I'm in the depths, dear,
and you're on the heights?
It's all so plain,
you're too far away.
I only pine to make you mine,
but ev'ry moment it's clearer
that I can't succeed till you've agreed
to come just a little bit nearer,
and till we're so close,
together that we
can't tell any longer
what's you and what's me,
I'll still maintain
you're too far away.
I think of you and suddenly start
to sing you the song
that's been long in my heart;
I sing in vain.
You're too far away.
Why should I dream of wonderful nights
when I'm in the depths, dear,
and you're on the heights?
It's all so plain,
you're too far away.
I only pine to make you mine,
but ev'ry moment it's clearer
that I can't succeed till you've agreed
to come just a little bit nearer,
and till we're so close,
together that we
can't tell any longer
what's you and what's me,
I'll still maintain
you're too far away.
