VERSE 1: Where I roam in sadness, Still the growing flow'rs,/ With their perfumed gladness Try to charm my hours./ Yet the crimson roses, And the vi'lets blue:/ They cannot console me, dearie, for I just want you.
REFRAIN: Ev'rywhere I go your voice I'm hearing;/ Ev'rywhere I glance I see your smile;/ Ev'ry footstep falling says you'r nearing,/ Thoughts of you each hour beguille./ Ev'rywhere I am, for you I'm yearning,/ Ev'rywher I roam, to you I'm turning./ And my heart, with love for you, is stronger burning,/ Just because I want you all the while.
VERSE 2: Though the roses, glowing, Speak of you anew,/ Yet my hopes are going, Roses are not you./ Leaden wing'd are passing, Hours of my exile:/ Just because I want you darling, want you all the while.
