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.
