My Heart Stood Still
Joni James Lyrics


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

I took one look at you
That's all I meant to do
And then my heart stopped right there

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 claps of hands
Told me so well you knew
I never lived at all
Until the thrill of that moment
When my heart stood still

"Terrific rendition." T"his is the one." "A great wedding song." Agreed. Lyrics by Lorenz Hart.

Randall Riley

Joni seems to be forgotten or at minimum, is overlooked today with all the theatrics and auto-tune editing that goes on in recording studios. It's worth stating that her pure, straight-forward singing style stole the hearts of many in the 1950's. Great track.

TheShadowfakx

This is the one. Never heard her before tonight.

MsMadKim

Sounds like a great wedding song to dance to with your partner
