I'm in the Mood for Love
Julie London Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm in the mood for love
Simply because you're near me.
Funny, but when you're near me
I'm in the mood for love.

Heaven is in your eyes
Bright as the stars we're under
Oh! Is it any wonder
I'm in the mood for love?

Why stop to think of whether
This little dream might fade?
We've put our hearts together
Now we are one, I'm not afraid!

If there's a cloud above
If it should rain we'll let it




But for tonight, forget it!
I'm in the mood for love

For my sweet senior patient who just passed. This was her favorite song. Always got her talking about her husband even deep into her dementia process. She smiled and laughed and danced whenever this song played. I’m so grateful she was part of my life. ❤️
