My Heart Stood Still

Album: Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Rodgers and Hart Song Book (1956)
  • I laughed at sweethearts I met at schools
    All indiscreet hearts Seemed romantic fools
    A house in Iceland was my heart`s domain
    I saw your eyes, now castles rise in Spain!

    I took one look at you, that`s all I meant to do
    And then my heart stood still,
    My feet could step and walk, my lips could move and talk
    And yet my heart stood still

    Though not a single word was spoken, I could tell you knew
    That unfelt clasp of hands told me so well you knew
    I never lived at all until the thrill of that moment when
    My heart stood still

    Through all my school days, I hated boys
    Those April Fool days brought me loveless joys
    I read my Plato, Love, I thought a sin
    But since your kiss, I`m reading Missus Glyn! Writer/s: LORENZ HART, RICHARD RODGERS
