We meet, and the angels sing,
The angels sing the sweetest song I ever heard.
You speak, and the angels sing -
Or am I breathing music into ev'ry word?

Suddenly, the setting is strange:
I can see water and moonlight beaming,
Silver waves that break on some undiscovered shore. 
Then suddenly, I see it all change:
Long winter nights with the candles gleaming,
Through it all your face that I adore.

You smile, and the angels sing
And though it's just a gentle murmur at the start,
We kiss, and the angels sing
And leave their music ringing in my heart.
