Arthur Schwartz, music, and Howard Dietz, lyrics, composed some memorable songs. They were sung by Libby Holman, Jo Stafford, Dinah Shore, Helen Forrest, Bing Crosby, Vera Lynn and a host of others.

Lyr. Add: Something To Remember You By

You are leaving me,
And I will try
To face the world alone.
What will be will be,
But time cannot
Erase the love we've known !

Let me but have a token,
Through which your love is spoken.
And I will say
You're my own, dear !

Oh, give me something to remember you by
When you are far away from me, dear.
Some little something meaning love cannot die.
No matter where you chance to be.

Though I'll pray for you,
Night and day for you,
It will see me through,
Like a charm until your returning.

So give me a little something to remember you by
When you are far away from me.

When you are far away from me.

The song was featured in the film, "Her Kind of Man."

Corrections and additional information welcome.

Subject: Lyr Add: DANCING IN THE DARK (A Schwartz, H Dietz)
From: Q (Frank Staplin)
Date: 08 Apr 13 - 02:35 PM


Dancing in the dark 'till the tune ends
We're dancing in the dark and it soon ends
We're waltzing in the wonder of why we're here
Time hurries by, we're here and we're gone.

Looking for the light of a new love
To brighten up the night, I have you love
And we can face the music together
Dancing in the dark, dancing in the dark,
Dancing in the dark.

What, though love is old
What, though the song is old
Through them we can be young

Hear this heart of mine
Make yours part of mine
Dear one, tell me that we're one.

Featured in the revue, "Band Wagon."

Sarah Vaughan made a memorable recording (on youtube). Other recordings by Artie Shaw, Thomas Dorsey, Connie Stevens, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Fred Waring.
