The Nearness Of You
Ned Alexander (w), Hoagy Carmichael (m)
1940
VERSE 1
It's not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me
Oh no, it's just the nearness of you.
It’s not your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation
Oh no, it's just the nearness of you
VERSE 2
When you're in my arms and I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams came true.
I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you would only grant me
The right to hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night
The nearness of you.
