You ask how much I need you,
Must I explain?
I need you, oh my darling
Like roses need rain

You ask how long I’ll love you,
I’ll tell you true.
Until the twelfth of never I’ll still be loving you

Hold me close
Never let me go
Hold me close
Melt my heart like April snow

I’ll love you ’till the blue bells forget to bloom
I’ll love you ’till the clover has lost its perfume
I’ll love you ’till the poets run out of rhyme

Oh… until the twelfth of never
And that’s a long long time…
Until the twelfth of never
And that’s a long long time…

– Jerry Livingstone & Paul Francis Webster. 1957. –

Popularised by Johnny Mathis, Cliff Richard, Elvis Presley, Donny Osmond, Barry Gibb, etc.

 

For the one I love truly.

With Love,
