If I could only find the key,
The one I might have left behind,
Maybe then my heart could see.

A nagging thought won’t let me be,
A thought that clings inside my mind;
If only I could find the key.

Unfamiliar feelings consume me, wrap me
In joyous bewilderment. If I could only understand,
Maybe then my heart could see.

These fears I felt are gone, it seems,
And I’m glad I chose to take your hand.
If only I could find the key…

Stay with me a while, please,
And next to you I think I’ll stand,
So maybe then my heart could see…
If only I could find the key.
