I laughed at sweethearts
I met at schools
All indiscreet hearts
Seemed romantic fools
A house in Iceland
Was my heart's domain
I saw your eyes
Now castles rise in Spain

I took one look at you
That's all I meant to do
And then my heart stood still
My feet could step and walk
My lips could move and talk
And yet my heart stood still

Though not a single word was spoken
I could tell you knew
That un-felt clasp of hands
Told me so well you knew
I never lived at all
Until the thrill of that moment when
My heart stood still

Through all my school days
I hated boys
Those April Fool days
Brought me loveless joys
I read my Plato
Love I thought a sin
But since your kiss
I'm reading Missus Glyn
