My One And Only Love
John Coltrane Lyrics


The very thought of you makes my heart sing
Like an April breeze on the wings of spring
And you appear in all your splendor
My one and only love

The shadows fall and spread their mystic charms
In the hush of night while you're in my arms
I feel your lips, so warm and tender
My one and only love
The touch of your hand is like heaven
A heaven that I've never known
The blush on your cheek whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own

You fill my eager heart with such desire
Every kiss you give sets my soul on fire
I give myself in sweet surrender
My one and only love
My one and only love

LYRICS:

The very thought of you makes
My heart sing
Like an April breeze
On the wings of spring
And you appear in all your splendor
My one and only love

The shadows fall
And spread their mystic charms
In the hush of night
While you're in my arms
I feel your lips so warm and tender
My one and only love

The touch of your hand is like heaven
A heaven that I've never known
The blush on your cheek
Whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own

You fill my eager heart with
Such desire
Every kiss you give
Sets my soul on fire
I give myself in sweet surrender
My one and only love

The blush on your cheek
Whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own
You fill my eager heart with
Such desire
Every kiss you give
Sets my soul on fire
I give myself in sweet surrender
My one and only love
My one and only love

El solo pensamiento de ti hace que mi corazón cante
Como una brisa de abril en las alas de la primavera
Y apareces en todo tu esplendor
Mi primero y unico amor

The shadows fall and spread
En el silencio de la noche mientras estas en mis brazos
Siento tus labios tan cálidos y tiernos
Mi primero y unico amor

El toque de tus manos es como el cielo
Un cielo que nunca he conocido
El rubor de tus mejillas siempre que hablo
Me dice que tú eres mía

Tu llenas mi corazón ansioso con tal deseo
Cada beso que me das pone mi alma en llamas
Y me doy en una dulce entrega
Mi primero y unico amor

The very thought of you makes
My heart sing
Like an April breeze
On the wings of spring
And you appear in all your splendor
My one and only love

The shadows fall
And spread their mystic charms
In the hush of night
While you're in my arms
I feel your lips so warm and tender
My one and only love

The touch of your hand is like heaven
A heaven that I've never known
The blush on your cheek
Whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own

You fill my eager heart with
Such desire
Every kiss you give
Sets my soul on fire
I give myself in sweet surrender
My one and only love

The blush on your cheek
Whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own
You fill my eager heart with
Such desire
Every kiss you give
Sets my soul on fire
I give myself in sweet surrender
My one and only love
My one and only love

John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman -My One and Only Love:
'It's 5:33, there's no one in the place except you and me . . . '

Hit the back-one-hour button on Siriusly Sinatra streaming on the computer and it's Chris Botti and Paula Cole's lovely, latter-day version of MY ONE AND ONLY LOVE. A song introduced by Frank Sinatra (the B-side of a record he recorded with Nelson Riddle in 1953 – but you knew that).

Ten years later sax giant John Coltrane recorded with Johnny Hartman. That's the version that impacted jazz musicians, then and now. Chris Botti imitated their approach, performing the first couple of minutes – the entire chorus – as an instrumental before Paula Cole starts her lovely vocal.

A 'who's who' of sax greats kept the song alive; today MY ONE AND ONLY LOVE has a small Wikipedia entry – with a large list of cover versions [noting that]

"My One and Only Love" is a popular song with music written by Guy Wood and lyrics by Robert Mellin. Published in 1953, it is a conventional 32-bar song with four 8-bar sections, including a bridge ("Type A" or "AABA" song structure). Typically performed as a ballad, it has an aria-like melody that is a challenge to many vocalists; in the key of C, the song's melody extends from G below middle C to the second D above middle C.

The song originated in 1947 as “Music from Beyond the Moon” with music by Guy B. Wood and lyrics by Jack Lawrence. Vocalist Vic Damone recorded this version in 1948, but it was unsuccessful.

In 1952, Robert Mellin wrote a new title and lyrics for the song, and it was republished the next year as “My One and Only Love”. When Frank Sinatra recorded it in 1953 with Nelson Riddle, first released as B-side to his hit single "I've Got the World on a String" (Capitol 2505), it became known. Then popular saxophonist Charlie Ventura saw the song's "jazz potential" and recorded the first instrumental version in the very same year.[1]

As an instrumental jazz standard, it remained predominantly a song for tenor saxophonists. Ben Webster recorded the tune with Art Tatum in autumn 1956. John Coltrane recorded his version with vocalist Johnny Hartman ten years after Ventura in 1963 (John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman). This was followed by Sonny Rollins in 1964. He re-recorded it in 1977, this time on soprano saxophone. Later interpretations came from Chico Freeman, Michael Brecker, and Joshua Redman.

Vocal renditions of "My One and Only Love" were recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, Johnny Mathis, Doris Day, Mark Murphy, Chet Baker and Kurt Elling. Cassandra Wilson turned the song into an up-tempo swing number.

The very thought of you
makes my heart sing
Like an April breeze
on the wings of spring,
And you appear in all your splendor,
My one and only love.

The shadows fall and spread
their mystic charms
In the hush of night
while you're in my arms.
I feel your lips, so warm and tender,
My one and only love.

The touch of your hand is like heaven,
A heaven that I've never known.
The blush on your cheek
whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own.

You fill my eager heart with such desire.
Every kiss you give sets my soul on fire.
I give myself in sweet surrender,
My one and only love.

The blush on your cheek
whenever I speak
Tells me that you are my own.

You fill my eager heart with such desire.
Every kiss you give sets my soul on fire.
I give myself in sweet surrender,
My one and only love.
My one and only love.
