LOVER
Richard Rogers, Lorenz Hart, 1932

Lover, when I'm near you, and I hear you-
Speak my name.
Softly, in my ear you breathe a flame.

Lover, when we're dancing, keep on glancing-
In my eyes.
'Til love's own enchanting music dies.

All of my future is in you,
You're every plan I design,
Promise you'll always continue to be mine.

Lover, it's immoral, but why quarrel-
With our bliss.
When two lips of coral want to kiss.

I say "The devil is in you," and to resist you- I try.
But if you didn't continue- I would die.

Lover, please be tender- when you're tender-
Fears depart.
Lover, I surrender- to my heart.

As sung by Frank Sinatra. The song first appeared in the film, "Love Me Tonight," 1932. It came back on to the charts more than once, including the war year, 1942, and a revision in the remake of "The Jazz Singer," 1952.

Thanks for reminding me of this great song, Q. I found it on Wikifonia lead sheets, but the chords would be too much for me.
    F#dim? Ebmaj7?
This calls for a true jazz musician.

Most folks don't realize that this is a waltz.
