HOAGY CARMICHAEL – The Nearness of You 

1937 The Nearness of you 
Lyrics by Ned Washington (1901-1976). 
“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 Light to Enchant me
If you would Only Grant Me the Right
To Hold you Ever so Tight
And to Feel in the Night
The Nearness of You.”
