Note: This song has 3 lead-in notes ("Some-where there's")
Some-where there's mus - ic,  how faint the tune!
Some- where there's hea - ven,  how high the moon!
There is no moon a- bove when love is far a- way too,
'Till it comes true,  that you love me as I love you.
Some times there's mus - ic,  it's where you are!
Some - where there's hea - ven,  how near so far!
The dark - est night would shine if you would come see me soon,
Un - til you will,  how still my heart,  how high the moon!
