Perry Como - "If You Were Only Mine" lyrics

If you were only mine,
if you were only mine
I know the sun would shine for me . . .
I'd find my happiness,
to be in your caress,
my every fear and every tear, I'd lose dear . . .
If you could understand,
I know you'd lend a hand,
to all the dreams I've planned for you . . .
Life would be so divine,
I'd worship at your shrine,
Sweetheart, if you were only mine!

Life would be so divine,
I'd worship at your shrine,
Sweetheart, if you were only mine!
