Maria Elena
You're the answer to a prayer
Maria Elena
Can't you see how much I care?
To me your voice is like the echo of a sigh
And when you're near my heart
Can't speak above a sigh
Maria Elena
Say that we will never part
Maria Elena
Take me to your heart
A love like mine is great enough for two
To share this love is really all I ask of you

Maria Elena
Say that we will never part
Maria Elena
Take me to your heart




A love like mine is great enough for two
To share this love is really all I ask of you
