You are the only one

You are the only one who sees my secrets,
though nobody has spoken, you know what I'm asking.
My longing is just you. Merely you give me
a little word, I am yours.
 
You are the only one I can never forget;
your mouth, your eyes, your calming voice.
And so I ask you now: merely you give me
a little word, I am yours.
 
No one like you, though you belong to another,
gives me love, with you I want to stay!
My destiny is to become yours in my fantasy,
a part of the world that is yours.

You are the only one that makes me dream,
the only one who knows what my tears are hiding.
My longing is just you. Merely you give me
a little word, I am yours.
 
You are the only one I can never forget;
your mouth, your eyes, your calming voice.
And so I ask you now: merely you give me
a little word, I am yours.
 
No one like you, though you belong to another,
gives me love, with you I want to stay!
My destiny is to become yours in my fantasy,
a part of the world that is yours.
 
Thanks!

Author's comments:

The Swedish text is written by the poet Bo Setterlind, year 1966.
The music is the mysterious and famous “Romance anónimo”.
No one knows where it comes from; may be a Ukrainian folk song that Mikhail Glinka brought to Spain.
Far too many claim today to be its real composer.

Romance anónimo is a music piece for classical guitar and it has no lyrics.
Andrés Segovia and Narciso Yepes are great interprets.

Many singers use the melody in their songs, with lyrics in many languages:
English: Tom Jones – Romance of Love (Forbidden Games)
French: Mireille Mathieu – Amour défendu
Spanish: Raphael – Tema de amor (Dicen que somos dos locos de amor)
