Lyrics:Johnny Mercer
Music:David Raksin

The song was publishe 1945.

The song is the theme for a 1944's film, " Laura".

The lyrics were written by Johnny Mercer
after the film had made the tune popular.
According to Mercer, he had not yet seen the movie when he wrote the lyrics,
but was aware that it was a romantic, somewhat haunting story.

The song has become a jazz standard, with more than 400 known recordings.
Some of the best-known versions are by Woody Herman, Johnny Johnston,
Emil Newman, David Rose, Billy Eckstine, Charlie Parker,
J. J. Johnson, Frank Sinatra and Julie London
(included on her 1955 debut album Julie Is Her Name, Vol. 1).


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

She gave your very first kiss to you
That was Laura but she's only a dream
