The Nearness of You
Frank Sinatra Lyrics


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

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

We tend to like this version since the accompaniment is simpler. We've read that somewhere around the 1950s Sinatra had some medical issues with his voice, which is why (along with just getting older) his vocals sound quite different before and after this point in his life. Always a great singer: phrasing, diction, pitch, etc.

Frank suffered a vocal cord hemorrhage.

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 came 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
