YOU'LL NEVER KNOW.
Copyright, 1891, by Chas. K. Harris.
Words and Music by Chas. K. Harris. Arranged by Jos. Clauder.
A vision of beauty greets my eyes, a girl with an angel face,
As she stands beneath the gleaming lights, with oh, such careless grace;
Lovers all crowd around her throne, there is no place for me,
As I stand in the midst of the mighty crowd, I am thinking, my love, of thee;
You'll never know the pain I feel, gazing on thy face bright,
You'll never know the dull heartache throbbing in me to-night.
I can't believe that you are false; would you then have it so?
Though my heart may break to-night, you will never know.
You'll never know when my heart is sad,
You'll never know that my love you had;
If there be one, but one regret,
You'll never know, you'll never know,
Tho' my heart break you'll never know.
The carriage is waiting at the door, a maiden so fair steps in,
The light has faded from her eyes, can she he thinking of him?
He thinks me false, unkind, untrue, could he but read my heart,
The answer there would then declare, love, we shall never part.
You'll never know the pain I felt, coldly you turned away,
You'll never know the tears that fall, falling for you to-day.
I must be smiling, bright and gay, and to the world not show
How I long to see your face; you will never know.- Chorus.
