  • Somewhere there's music
    How faint the tune
    Somewhere there's heaven
    How high the moon
    There is no moon above
    When love is far away too
    Till it comes true
    That you love me as I love you
    Somewhere there's music
    How near, how far
    Somewhere there's heaven
    It's where you are
    The darkest night would shine
    If you would come to me soon
    Until you will, how still my heart
    How high the moon

    Somewhere there's music
    How faint the tune
    Somewhere there's heaven
    How high the moon
    The darkest night would shine
    If you would come to me soon
    Until you will, how still my heart
