Love Can't Happen

BARON VON GAIGERN:
Mademoiselle, I have followed you ev'rywhere,
Almost throughout your career.
London, Vienna, Paree, I've admired you,
Hoping one day we might meet in this way.
Though I never thought I'd be carried away,
Oh, I knew you'd be beautiful, but not so beautiful ...

Love can't happen quite so quickly,
Not unless I dreamed you, beautif'ly and sweetly ...
No, don't look through me so clearly.
I might very nearly lose myself completely.
Who could ever have suspected you would make me tremble so?
I can't think of any answer other than, if love comes ...
When love comes, you know.
What is this I'm saying? What is this I'm feeling?
Like I'm getting drunk, looking in her eyes ...
Overwhelming face, utterly appealing.
Never mind the truth, never mind the lies.
Never mind a thought in the world except ...
Love can't happen quite so quickly,
I might very nearly lose myself completely.
Who could ever have suspected I would be here trembling so?
I can't think of any answer other than, if love comes,
When love comes, you know. And I know!
