I do not ask for tearless nights
Only the hope of the glimmer of dawn;
I do not plead for cloudless ways
Only a light as the way winds on;
I do not hunger for the glory of fame
Only a shoulder when the day is long;
I do not cry for the fervor of thousands
Only one love beating true and strong.
Only a light, a shade, a song
Only a shoulder when the day is long.
