This Nearly Was Mine

Writer(s): Richard Rodgers / Oscar Hammerstein
(from The Complete Reprise Studio Recordings, Disc 5)

One dream in my heart, one love to be living for,
One love to be living for, this nearly was mine.
One girl for my dream, one partner in paradise,
This promise of paradise, this nearly was mine.
Close to my heart she came, only to fly away,
Only to fly as day flies from moonlight.
Now, now I’m alone, still dreaming of paradise,
Still saying that paradise once nearly was mine.
