When lovers walk hand in hand by moonlight.

The world becomes their private wonderland.

A world that only lovers understand

created solely for their joint delight.

It seems that only lovers have the right

and only when they’re walking hand in hand

of access in response to loves command.

Non lovers doomed to fail try as they might



They know that love supplies the golden key

to open the locks which bar their entry.

So come my love and place your hand in mine

and let us walk together trustfully.

Through worlds that only lovers see.

A paradise only love could design.
