YOU, JUST YOU.

Words and Music by K. H. Janssen.
The world is bright, yet all its brightness is naught to me unless you're nigh;
My heart is light, yet all its lightness, when you are absent, makes it sigh;
Each wish I have is full of longing, that naught will satisfy, subdue;
If night, or morning dawn, or gloaming, my heart beats ever for you, just you.
No thought that's not of thee, no face but thine I see;
Dreaming or waking, you, only you:
Life has no pleasures, dear; no joy, lest thou art near-
Only one craving-you, just you.
The past is filled with joy and gladness, a dream of purest love, so dear,
That though to-day brought naught but sadness, to-morrow's coming ne'er I'd
For in thy love I'd lay my keeping, seek solace in thine eyes so true, [fear
And hid defiance to each danger, and live or die for you, just you- Refrain.
