I’m Yours

I'm YoursWords by E Y Harburg and Music by John W Green

Ask the sky above
And ask the earth below
Why I’m so in love
And why I love you so
Couldn’t tell you though I tried do
Just why I’m yours
When you went away
You left a glowing spark
Trying to be gay as
Whistling in the dark
I am only what you make me
Come take me
I’m yours

How can I happy
I would be to beg or borrow
For sorrow
With you
Even though I knew
Tomorrow
You’d say we were through
If we drift apart
Then I’ll be lost and alone
Though you use my heart
Just for a steppin’ stone
How can I help dreaming of you
I love you
I’m yours

How can I happy
I would be to beg or borrow
For sorrow
With you
Even though I knew
Tomorrow
You’d say we were through
If we drift apart
Then I’ll be lost and alone
Though you use my heart
Just for a steppin’ stone
How can I help dreaming of you
I love you
I’m yours
