Perry Como - "My Heart Stood Still (1952 Version)" lyrics

I laughed at sweethearts, I met at schools
All indiscrete hearts, seemed romantic fools
A house in Iceland was my heart's domain
I saw your eyes, now castles rise in Spain!

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 an' 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!

( 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!

Music by Richard Rodgers
with lyrics by Lorenz Hart, 1927
