Perry Como - This Nearly Was Mine lyrics

One dream in my heart,
one love to be living for,
one love to be living for,
this nearly was mine!

One girl for my dreams,
one partner in paradise,
this promise of paradise,
this nearly was mine!

Close to my heart she came,
only to fly away!
Only to fly as day
flies from moonlight!

Now, now I'm alone


still dreaming of paradise,
still sayin' that paradise
once nearly was mine!

instrumental break

Only to fly as day
flies from moonlight!

Now, now I'm alone
still dreaming of paradise,
still sayin' that paradise
once nearly was mine!

Music by Richard Rodgers
with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
