Ther'es a soft rain tappin' on your window
There's a cool breeze blowin' off the bay
And a warm flame dancin' with our shadows
To music playin' far away
I never meant to stay an hour
I thought that I was passing through
Another town along the highway
I never meant to fall for you

But I can't speak for you Maria
I only know the way I feel
When I sleep with you, Maria
There's nothing left for dreams to steal

On a Bible by the mirror
The only treasures that we hold
The only secrets that we're keepin'
A watch, a chain, a cross of gold


When the sunlight brings the mornin'
I can't tell you what I'll do
But I've a mind to take you with me
And I've got heart to stay with you


When I sleep with you, Maria
There's nothin' left for dreams to steal
