I Didn't Know What Time It Was
Cécile McLorin Salvant Lyrics


I didn't know what time it was then I met you
Oh, what a lovely time it was, how sublime it was too

I didn't know what day it was you held my hand
Warm like the month of may it was and I'll say it was grand

Grand to be alive, to be young, to be mad, to be yours alone
Grand to see your face, feel your touch, hear your voice
Say I'm all your own

I did not know what year it was, live was no prize
I wanted love and there it was, shining out of your eyes
I'm wise and I know what time it's now.

Grand to be alive, to be young, to be mad, to be yours alone
Grand to see your face, hear your voice, feel your touch
Say I'm all your own

I did not know what year it was, live was no prize
I wanted love and there it was, shining out of your eyes
I'm wise and I know what time it's now.

I didn't know what time it was then I met you
Oh, what a lovely time it was, how sublime it was too

I didn't know what day it was you held my hand
Warm like the month of may it was and I'll say it was grand

Grand to be alive, to be young, to be mad, to be yours alone
Grand to see your face, hear your voice, feel your touch
Say I'm all your own

I didn't know what year it was, live was no prize
I wanted love and there it was, shining out of your eyes
I'm wise and I know what time it's now.

I hear Billie, Ella, Sarah, Wow! It is great that Jazz will live as long as such young geniuses rekindle it in their soul.

I hear Betty! Love this.

Well put!

Agnieszka Joanna

I feel the same about her voice

rdberg1957

First time I've ever heard her.  She has such a sweet sound coupled with an intense driving pulse that carries you with her.  I hear a little bit of Sarah and a little bit of Billie.  And that ain't bad.  

Ronan Cowan
