Tracklist

I Hadn't Anyone Til You

length: 3:44
arranger: Don Costa
vocal: Frank Sinatra
composer: Ray Noble
lyricist: Ray Noble

I hadn't anyone
Till you
I was a lonely one
Till you
I used to lie awake and wonder
If there could be
A someone in this wide world
Just made for me
And now I see
I had to save my love
For you
I never gave my love
Till you
And through my lonely heart demanding it
Cupid took a hand in it
I hadn't anyone
Till you
And through my lonely heart demanding it
Cupid took a hand in it
I hadn't anyone
Till you

Night and Day

length: 3:39
arranger: Don Costa
vocal: Frank Sinatra
composer: Cole Porter, Cole Porter
lyricist: Cole Porter, Cole Porter
Like the beat, beat, beat of the tom tom
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick, tick, tock of the stately clock
As it stands against the wall
Like the drip, drip, drip of the raindrops
When the summer show'are is through
So a voice within me keeps repeating
You, you, you.

Night and day
You are the one
Only you beneath the moon
And under the sun
Whether near to me or far
No matter, darling Where you are
I think of you
Night and day

Day and night
Why it is so
That this longing for you
Follows wherever I go.
In the roarin' traffic's boom
In the silence of my lonely room
I think of you
Night and day

Night and day
Under the hide of me
There's an oh such a hungry
Yearnin' burnin' inside of me
And its torment won't be through
'Til you let me spend my life
Making love to you
Day and night
Night and day

Misty

length: 2:42
arranger: Don Costa
vocal: Frank Sinatra
lyricist: Johnny Burke
composer: Erroll Garner
Look at me
I'm as helpless as a kitten
Up a tree
And I feel like I'm
Hanging from a cloud
I can't understand
I get misty

Just holding your hand
Walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
This magic I hear
I get misty

The moment you're near
You could say that you're leading me on
But it's just what I want you to do
Can't you see just how hopelessly I'm drawn
That's why I'm following you
On my own
Would I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
I get misty

And too much in love
On my own
Would I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat and my glove
I get misty

Would I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat and my glove
I get misty
And too much in love
Look at me

Stardust

length: 2:48
arranger: Don Costa
vocal: Frank Sinatra
composer: Hoagy Carmichael
lyricist: Mitchell Parish
And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we're apart
You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by.

Sometimes I wonder, how I spend
The lonely nights
Dreaming of a song
The melody
Haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
And now my consolation is in the stardust of a song

Besides the garden wall, when stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale
Tells his fairytale
Of paradise, where roses grew
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain.

Come Rain or Come Shine

length: 4:07
arranger: Don Costa
vocal: Frank Sinatra
composer: Harold Arlen
lyricist: Johnny Mercer
I'm gonna love you, like nobody's loved you
Come rain or come shine
High as a mountain, deep as a river
Come rain or come shine
I guess when you met me
It was just one of those things
But don't you ever bet me
'Cause I'm gonna be true if you let me
You're gonna love me, like nobody's loved me
Come rain or come shine
We'll be happy together, unhappy together
Now won't that be just fine
The days may be cloudy or sunny
We're in or out of the money
But I'm with you always
I'm with you rain or shine

It Might as Well Be Spring

length: 3:16
arranger: Don Costa
vocal: Frank Sinatra
lyricist: Oscar Hammerstein II
composer: Richard Rodgers
I'm as restless as a willow in a windstorm
I'm as jumpy as puppet on a string
I'd say that I had spring fever
But I know it isn't spring
I am starry eyed and vaguely discontented
Like a nightingale without a song to sing
O why should I have spring fever
When it isn't even spring
I keep I were someone else
Walking down a strange new street
And hearing words that I've never head
From a girl I've yet to meet
I'm as busy as spider spinning daydreams
Spinning spinning daydreams
I'm as giggy as a baby on a swing
I haven't seen a crocus or a rosebud
Or a robin on the wing
But I feel so gay in a melancholy way
That it might as well be spring
It might as
Well be
Spring

Prisoner of Love

length: 3:52
arranger: Don Costa
vocal: Frank Sinatra
composer: Clarence Gaskill, Russ Columbo
lyricist: Leo Robin
Alone from night to night
You'll find me too weak to break the chains that bind me.
I need no shackles to remind me,
I'm just a prisoner of love.

For one command, I stand and wait now
From one who's master of my fate now.
I can't escape for it's too late now,
I'm just a prisoner of love.

What's the good of my caring
If someone is sharing those arms with me.
Although she has another,
I can't find another for I'm not free.

She's in my dreams awake or sleeping,
Upon my knees to her I'm creeping,
My very life is in her keeping,
I'm just a prisoner of love.

That's All

length: 3:22
arranger: Don Costa
vocal: Frank Sinatra
composer: Alan Brandt, Bob Haymes
lyricist: Alan Brandt
I can only give you love that lasts forever
And the promise to be near each time you call
And the only heart I own is yours and yours alone, that's all, that's all

I can only give you country walks in springtime
And a hand to hold when leaves begin to fall
And a love whose burning light to warm the winter night, that's all, that's all

There are those I am sure who have told you
They will give you the world for a toy
All I ask for these arms to enfold you, and a love, time can never destroy
If you're wond'ring what I'm asking in return, dear
You'll be glad to know that my demands are small
Say it's me that you'll adore for now and ever more, that's all, that's all

All or Nothing at All

length: 3:45
arranger: Don Costa
vocal: Frank Sinatra
composer: Jack Lawrence, Arthur Altman
lyricist: Jack Lawrence
All or nothing at all
Half a love, never appealed to me
If your heart, never could yield to me
Then I'd rather (rather) have nothing at all

All or nothing at all
If it's love, there is no in between
Why begin then cry, for something that might have been
No I'd rather (rather) have nothing at all

But please don't bring your lips so close to my cheek
Don't smile or I'll be lost beyond recall
The kiss in your eyes, the touch of your hand makes me weak
And my heart may go dizzy and fall

And if I fell (I fell) under the spell of your call
I would be, caught in the undertow
So you see, I've got to say no, no
All or nothing at all

Yesterdays

length: 3:45
arranger: Don Costa
vocal: Frank Sinatra
composer: Jerome Kern
lyricist: Otto Harbach
Yesterdays
Yesterdays
Days I knew as happy sweet
Sequestered days
Olden days
Golden days
Days of mad romance and love
Then gay youth was mine
And truth was mine
Joyous free and flaming life
Forsooth was mine
Sad am I
Glad am I
For today I'm dreaming of
Of yesterdays
Then gay youth was mine
The truth was mine
Sad am I
Glad am I
For today I'm dreaming of
Of yesterdays
