I, I Who have nothing
I, I Who have no-one
Adore you and want you so
I'm just a know one
with nothing to give you but, oh
..............I Love You............

You, you buy her diamonds
Bright sparkling diamonds
but believe me, dear when I say
that she can give you the world,
but she will never love you the way ...
..............I Love You.............

You can take any place she wants,
fancy clubs and restaurants..
I can only watch you
with my nose pressed up against
the window.pane

I, I who have nothing
I, I who have no-one
must watch you go waltzing by
wrapped in the arms of somebody else
but darling it is I ....who ...love... you
...............I Love You..................

Nicely recorded and performed... this sad, melancholy song is a theatrical piece suited well for TV/Film placement. Instrumentation, production and lead vocal all work well together to create this sad but effective piece. Nice job.

The music is simply amazing the Bass Harmonics the arrangement the approach - stunning!

A beautiful song !

Sad, but touching and well done piece with great vocals and orchestration. The strings are well placed and very effective.
