The Song Is You
The Dave Brubeck Quartet Lyrics

I hear music when I look at you,
A beautiful theme of every
Dream I ever knew.
Down deep in my heart I hear it play.
I feel it start, then melt away.

I hear music when I touch your hand,
A beautiful melody
From some enchanted land.
Down deep in my heart, I hear it say,
Is this the day?

I alone have heard this lovely strain,
I alone have heard this glad refrain:
Must it be forever inside of me,
Why can't I let it go,
Why can't I let you know,
Why can't I let you know the song
My heart would sing?

That beautiful rhapsody
Of love and youth and spring,
The music is sweet,
The words are true
The song is you.

I love how Desmond trades off riffs with himself


The best version with Bird's one


After so many years I get to listen to this song again, I thought I wouldn't be able to find it again, since I only remembered David Brubeck and the melody (where I live jazz wasn't popular, and his name was not known)
thank you for uploading this song 😃
