It's A Little More Like Heaven    (1958)

I have sailed the peaceful water, salty ocean deep and blue
Felt the rapture of the dawning, thrilled through sunset's golden view
I've sought above the mountain peaks for valleys great and wide
But it's a little more like heaven by your side

It's a little more like heaven where you are
I have sought for happiness both near and far
But my search for love was through the day that I met you
Cause it's a little more like heaven where you are

I have watched the crystal raindrops fall to earth to cool the day
Watched the rainbow at twilight when the clouds have flown away
I've adored the clinging roses round my mountain home so dear
But it's a little more like heaven when you're near

It's a little more like heaven where you are
I have sought for happiness both near and far
But my search for love was through the day that I met you
Cause it's a little more like heaven where you are

I've been tempted for a moment by your luring magic charms
Of a fickle flame and beauty while waltzin' in her arms
I cherished mem'ries of the past of friends so kind and true
But it's a little more like heaven here with you

It's a little more like heaven where you are
I have sought for happiness both near and far
But my search for love was through the day that I met you
Cause it's a little more like heaven where you are
