It's all sweet now
It's all brand new
And I'm eager to promise
What I'm eager to do

But I can't say it in a look
Or convey it with a rhyme
I can only tell you in time

If a letter is an hour
And a word is a day
And I'm writing you a poem
And I got a lot to say

If the poem grows weekly
Then I'll have to switch to prose
Or I might have to tell you in a tome

Well, Of course you don't need glasses
Those eyes are blue and clear
And I don't need them either
When I'm lying so near

And looking to the future
And I hope it's where we are
But I can't tell
I can't see that far

And I'm dying to claim it
But I don't have any proof
Better not to say it
Then there's something to look forward to

Cuz though I do it sincerely
I can't say it with a smile
I'll just have to tell you after a while
