The Nearness of You

Lyrics:Ned Washington
Music:Hoagy Carmichael

The song was publishe 1938.

The song was featured in the Paramount film Romance in the Dark,
which was released in 1938 starring John Barrymore and John Boles.
In the film, it was performed by the lead actress Gladys Swarthout
of Metropolitan Opera fame. However, some debate this origination.

The biggest selling 1938 version was recorded by the Glenn Miller orchestra,
with a vocal by Ray Eberle.
This recording first reached the Billboard magazine Best Seller chart
on July 20, 1940.

Why do I just wither and forget all resistance
When you and your magic pass by
My heart's in a dither dear
When you're at a distance
But when you are near, oh my...

It's not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

When you're in my arms
And I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams come true

I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you'll only grant me the right
To hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night
The nearness of you
