Lyrics:Johnny Burke
Music:Erroll Garner

The song was publishe 1954.

Originally composed as an instrumental following
the traditional 32-bar format and first recorded
for Garner's 1955 album Contrasts,
the tune was later paired with lyrics by Johnny Burke
and became the signature song of Johnny Mathis,
appearing on his 1959 album Heavenly
and reaching #12 on the U.S. Pop Singles chart later that year.

Look at me,
I'm as helpless as a kitten up a tree
And I feel like I'm clinging to a cloud,
I can't understand
I get misty, just holding your hand

Walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear,
I get misty the moment you're near

You can say that you're leading me on,
But it's just what I want you to do
Don't you notice how hopelessly I'm lost?
That's why I'm following you

On my own,
Would I wander through this wonderland alone?
Never knowing my right foot from my left,
My hat from my glove
I'm too misty, and too much in love.

You can never capture it again. "
