    and it just doesn't matter how much I love you.

    But in time you'll understand, dear, when you shed a tear,

                                                              A                D

    then you'll know you were living in your tender years.

2. In your eyes there's a love light that shines for him,

                                                                  A                      D

    but how long will it stay there, will that love light grow dim ?

                                                      A                 D
