Lyrics by: Oscar Hammerstein II (O. Greeley Clendenning H. II)
Music by: Richard Rodgers
Outtake from: South Pacific 1949 (S) 1953 (M)
I wake in the loneliness of sunrise
When the deep-purple heaven turns blue,
And start to pray,
As I pray each day,
That I'll hear some word from you.
I walk in the loneliness of evening
Looing out on a silver-flaked sea,
And ask the moon:
Oh, how soon, how soon,
Will my love come home to me?
