Whether you are here or yonder, whether you are false or true Whether you remain or wander, I'm growing fonder of you Even though your friends forsake you, even though you don't succeed Wouldn't I be glad to take you, give you the break you need
More than you know, more than you know Girl of my heart, I love you so Lately I find you're on my mind More than you know
Whether you're right, whether you're wrong Girl of my heart, I'll string along You need me so Much more than you'll ever know
Loving you the way that I do There's nothing I can do about it Loving may be all you can give But baby I can't live without it
Oh, how I'd cry, oh, how I'd cry If you got tired and said "Good-bye" More than I'd show More than you'd ever know
