the nearness of you lyrics – norah jones

“the nearness of you”

[originally written by ned jones and hoagy carmichael for the movie “romance in the dark”]
[recorded by hoagy carmichael in 1937]

it’s not the pale moon that excites me
that thrills and delights me, oh no
it’s just the nearness of you

it isn’t your sweet conversation
that brings this sensation, oh no
it’s just the nearness of you

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’ll only grant me the right
to hold you ever so tight
and to feel in the night the nearness of you

/ norah jones lyrics
