The Nearness of You

Originally written by Ned Jones and Hoagy Carmichael for the movie “Romance In The Dark”


It’s not the pale moon that excites me,

That thrills and delights me, oh no.

It’s just the nearness of You, my Lord.


It isn’t our sweet conversations

That brings this sensation, oh no.

It’s just the nearness of You.


When You’re in my heart and I feel You so close to me,

All my wildest dreams come true.


I need no subtle sights to enchant me

If You’ll only grant me the right

To hold your daaman so tight

And to feel in the night the nearness of You.
