William Henry McCarthy, 1859

I'll watch o'er thy dreams when thou'rt sleeping,
For thee love, for thee love,
I'll weep o'er thy cares when thou'rt weeping,
For thee, only thee.
The wild lands of India,
The prairie, the sea
May lure me, but fondly,
I'll still turn to thee.
Refrain:
For thee, dearest thee
I would roam night and day,
|: And thy love, and thy love
Would cheer my lonely way. :|
2. I'll dwell on thy smiles when thou'rt walking,
For thee love, for thee love,
My heart would be faithful though breaking
For thee only thee.
In bowers where we've lingered
Each flowret and thee
Remains in my mem'ry
An emblem of thee.
Refrain:

3. The lark and the linnet seem singing,
For thee love, for thee love,
The bud into blossom seems springing
For thee only thee.
The bloom on the meadows
The rippling of streams
Recall but thy fair form
The queen of my dreams.
Refrain:
