Last night by my window so lonely
As I mentioned your name in my prayers
It seemed I could hear your voice calling
From far out on that ocean of stars.

You whispered my name and I saw you
Descending to me from on high
I had fallen asleep and was dreaming
Then awoke, hung my troubled head and cried.

Chorus:
You played love on the strings of my heart dear
When you whispered "I love only you, just you"
But you broke ev'ry promise little darling
Now the strings on my heart are broken too.

Oh, why did you have to deceive me
Oh, why did you prove so untrue, I'm blue
Ev'ry string on my heart you have broken
And darling my heart is broken too.

Then I dreamed of a golden tomorrow
Of a life filled with treasures for you, just you
As the moon kissed the gold in your curls dear
You told me you'd always be true.

But the dawn broke your vows little darling
I know I can never have you, we're thru'
For that old rising sun then awoke me
So weary in my mind and still blue.

Chorus:
You played love on the strings of my heart dear
When you whispered "I love only you, just you"
But you broke ev'ry promise little darling
Now the strings on my heart are broken too...
