The Shadow of Your Smile

After The Shadow of Your Smile by Tony Bennett;
music by Johnny Mandel,  lyrics by Paul Francis Webster

 

One day we walked along the sand,

One day in Your Eternal spring.

You held my world in Your hand

To mend it and make me sing.

Now I remember many a day

And many a lonely mile,

The echo of Your lovers’ song,

The shadow of Your smile.

 

The shadow of Your smile,

The world I look upon,

Has colored all my dreams

And now lights the dawn.

You look into my eyes

My Love and I see

All the everythings

You are to me.

 

My longing went so far

I felt I would die.

My teardrops kissed Your lips,

And life turned divine.

Now when I remember things,

And all the joy Your Love can bring,

I will be remembering

The shadow of Your smile.

 

My longing went so far

I felt I would die.

This teardrop kissed Your lips,

And life turned divine.

Now when I remember things,

And all the joy Your Love can bring,

I will be remembering

The shadow of Your smile.
