The Shadow of Your Smile

Lyrics:Paul Francis Webster
Music:Johnny Mandel

The song was publishe 1965.

Johnny Mandel scored the 1965 film The Sandpiper which starred
much publicized lovers, real life husband and wife Elizabeth Taylor
and Richard Burton.
The entire soundtrack consisted of variations on the song
“The Shadow of Your Smile,” also known as
“Love Theme from The Sandpiper.”
Mandel won a Grammy for Best Score for a Motion Picture,
and along with lyricist Paul Francis Webster took home the Oscar
for Best Original Song and the Golden Laurel for Best Song.

In the film the song is heard as an instrumental
and sung by a chorus during the closing credits.
It became one of the most recorded film songs of the decade
especially since it lent itself so naturally to the beat of the
Brazilian bossa nova, the craze of the sixties.

The Sandpiper

One day we walked along the sand
One day in early spring
You held a piper in your hand
To mend its broken wing
Now I'll remember many a day
And many a lonely mile
The echo of a piper's song
The shadow of a smile

The shadow of your smile
When you are gone
Will color all my dreams
And light the dawn
Look into my eyes
My love and see
All the lovely things
You are to me

Our wistful little star
Was far too high
A teardrop kissed your lips
And so did I
Now when I remember spring
All the joy that love can bring
I will be remembering
The shadow of your smile
