“You Are Never Away” LYRICS

You are never away
From your home in my heart;
There is never a day
When you don’t play a part

In a word that I say
Or a sight that I see—
You are never away,
And I’ll never be free.

You’re the smile on my face,
Or a song that I sing,
You’re a rainbow I chase
On a morning in spring;
You’re a star in the lace
Of a wild willow tree—
In the green, leafy lace
Of a wild willow tree.

But tonight you’re no star,
Nor a song that I sing;
In my arms, where you are,
You are sweeter than spring;

In my arms, where you are,
Clinging closely to me,
You are lovelier, by far,
Than I dreamed you could be—
You are lovelier, my darling,
Than I dreamed you could be!
