Lyrics:Johnny Mercer
Music:David Raksin

The song was publishe 1945.

As you've already known that it's the theme tune of a film, " Laura" (1944).
It's not a song originally.
Then Johnny Mercer added the lyrics, and Sinatra and Nat King Cole
and more have sung it.

Not only the melody is so great, but the lyrics are very beautiful also.
The lyrist Merser had written them without seeing the film at all.


Laura is the face in the misty light
Footsteps that you hear down the hall
The laugh that floats on a summer night
That you can never quite recall

And you see
Laura on a train that is passing through
Those eyes, how familiar they seem
She gave your very first kiss to you
That was Laura, but she's only a dream

You can never capture it again. "
