Oh! Will you never let me be?
The ties that bound us
There's no escape that I can see
That bring me happiness or pain
A cigarette that bears a lipstick's traces
And still my heart has wings
A tinkling piano in the next apartment
A fair ground's painted swings
You came you saw you conquer'd me
I knew somehow this had to be
A telephone that rings but who's to answer?
These foolish things remind me of you
First daffodils and long excited cables
And still my heart has wings
The park at evening when the bell has sounded
The beauty that is Spring's
How strange how sweet to find you still
They seem to bring you near to me
Silk stockings thrown aside dance invitations
These foolish things remind me of you
Gardenia perfume ling'ring on a pillow
And still my heart has wings
The smile of Garbo and the scent of roses
The song that Crosby sings
How strange how sweet to find you still
They seem to bring you near to me
Two lovers on the street who walk like dreamers
These foolish things remind me of youOh! Will you never let me be?
The ties that bound us
There's no escape that I can see
That bring me happiness or pain
A cigarette that bears a lipstick's traces
And still my heart has wings
A tinkling piano in the next apartment
A fair ground's painted swings
You came you saw you conquer'd me
I knew somehow this had to be
A telephone that rings but who's to answer?
These foolish things remind me of you
First daffodils and long excited cables
And still my heart has wings
The park at evening when the bell has sounded
The beauty that is Spring's
How strange how sweet to find you still
They seem to bring you near to me
Silk stockings thrown aside dance invitations
These foolish things remind me of you
Gardenia perfume ling'ring on a pillow
And still my heart has wings
The smile of Garbo and the scent of roses
The song that Crosby sings
How strange how sweet to find you still
They seem to bring you near to me
Two lovers on the street who walk like dreamers
These foolish things remind me of you
