Drunk with the feeling that the arms that possess you Really caress you too. You are too beautiful for one man alone, For one lucky fool to be with, When there are other men with eyes of their own To see with. Love cannot stand sharing, Not if one cares. You won't be comparing My every kiss with theirs. You know I care and I'll be faithful to you, Not through a sense of duty. You are too beautiful, And I am too drunk with beauty. Like all fools I believed What I wanted to believe, My foolish heart conceived What foolish hearts conceived. I thought I'd found a miracle, I thought that you'd adore me, But it was not a miracle, It was merely a mirage before me. You are too beautiful, my dear, to be true, And I am a too drunk with beauty. Drunk with the feeling that the arms that possess you Really caress you too. You are too beautiful for one man alone, For one lucky fool to be with, When there are other men with eyes of their own To see with. Love cannot stand sharing, Not if one cares. You won't be comparing My every kiss with theirs. You know I care and I'll be faithful to you, Not through a sense of duty. You are too beautiful, And I am too drunk with beauty.
