Lyrics:Paul Francis Webste
Music:Bronislau Kaper

The song was publishe 1952.

Bronislau Kaper composed the score for the 1950 film A Life of Her Own,
starring Lana Turner as a model who’s having an affair
with a married man played by Ray Milland.
Kaper’s film score was nominated for a Golden Globe award,
but the picture did not do well at the box office.
However, the lush and haunting score was so appealing that it was used
for a second film in 1952, Invitation,
starring Dorothy Maguire and Van Johnson.
Paul Francis Webster wrote the lyric for Kaper’s main theme,
called simply “Invitation.”
So although Kaper wrote the melody in 1950,
the song’s date is usually given as 1952.

A Life of Her Own

You and your smile hold a strange invitation
Somehow it seems
We've shed our dream but we're
Time after time in a room full of strangers
Out of the blue, suddenly you were there

Wherever I go you're the glow of temptation,
Glancing my way in the grey of the dawn
And always your smile holds that strange invitation
Then you are gone
Where oh where have you gone

How long must I live in a world of illusion
Be where you are so near yet so far, apart
Hoping you'll say with a sweet invitation
Where have you been, darling come in
Into my heart
