Do You Want My Love?


Do you want my love?
I'll send it to you,
On particles and waves of light;
It will cross the oceans, valleys and hills,
Its glow will light up the night

Do you want my love?
I'm offering it now,
And it's fresh as the morning dew;
I'll mingle it together with the evening clouds
And float it gently to you

Do you want my love?
You need to decide,
You'll never find a love more true;
I'll bring down a star from the firmament's glow
And shoot it right over to you

Do you want my love?
It's straight from my heart,
It's still warm, and if I may be so bold.....
You can use it as a blanket to cover you
When your bed is empty and cold

Do you want my love?
I offer it freely,
You'll never have to beg or plea;
But just remember, I can't live without it,
Once in a while, kindly return it to me
