The song was introduced by the singer Martha Mears in the 1949 film of the same name. The song failed to escape critics' general laceration of the film. Time wrote in its review that "nothing offsets the blight of such tear-splashed excesses as the bloop-bleep-bloop of a sentimental ballad on the sound track. " Nevertheless, the song was nominated for an Oscar, losing out to "Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Frank Loesser.
This aim set for dreaming Love is knocking at the door But oh my heart I'm reluctant to start Cause we've been here before
The night is like a lovely tune, Beware my foolish heart How white the ever constant moon, Take care, my foolish heart.
There's a line between love and fascination, That's hard to see on an evening such as this, For they both give the very same sensation. When you're lost in the magic of a kiss.
Your lips are much too close to mine, Beware, my foolish heart But should our eager lips combine, Then let the fire start.
For this time it isn't fascination, Or a dream that would fade and fall apart, It's love, this time, it's love, My foolish heart.
