Chorus:
You are the bright love of my heart
Stay with me always
You are the bright love of my heart
Be true to me
You are the bright love of my heart
You are my sweetheart
You are the bright love of my heart
Stay by my side

Beauty and grace with golden hair
Eyes like pearls came from the sea

Wherever you will go, I will go
Wherever you will turn, I'll follow so
Take me to the Land of Youth
Three hundred years

(Chorus)

Carried away on impulse
Followed my heart to the Land of Youth

Three hundred years and time stood still
Companions calling, there's warning

(Chorus)

Three hundred years

Fallen to earth, the thunder sound
Years overtake him, a gray old man

(Chorus)
