My Heart Stood Still (Nat King Cole)

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 unfelt 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!
