The Songs I Love ~ original album 1963

Carnival 1963 Version
Iíll sing to the sun in the sky,
Iíll sing Ďtill the sun rises high,
Carnival time is here,
Magical time of year,
And as the time draws near,
Dreams lift my heart!
 
Iíll sing as I play my guitar,
Iíll cling to a dream from afar,
Will love come my way,
This Carnival day,
And stay . . .  here in my heart?
 
< instrumental bridge >
 
Iíll sing as I play my guitar,
Iíll cling to my dream from afar,
Will love come my way,
This Carnival day,
And stay here in my heart?
 
Will true love come my way,
On this Carnival day,
Or will I be alone with my dream?
