Koes Plus: I Will Come To You

Even morning is bright
Oh, I’m not satisfied
without you my love
When I’m takin’ a walk
I don’t wanna talk
cause my heart is locked
How much I love you so
But thought you’ll never know,
and I hate you to go
I look into your eyes
I really believe love can never die

Any way the wind blows
Doesn’t really matter to me, to me
