7 be mine [4:41]



be mine
(Kimmie Rhodes)

When the green, green spring
Is waiting for the sun to shine
It knows the sun will shine
In time… in time…
How long until the dawn?
Is there any sign?
How long until your love will be mine?

The sweetest dream
I ever dreamed in all my life
Was one of having you
In time… in time…
Are you ever gonna wake up
From the sleep you sleep?
How long until your love will be mine?

Be mine
Be mine
How long until your love will be mine?

I’ve heard it said
That a thousand years is like a day
Just a twinkle of an eye
In time… in time…
Just a moment full of grace
My whole life would be
If you would say your love could be mine

Be mine
Be mine
How long until your love will be mine?

Be mine
Be mine
How long until your love will be mine?
