My Heart Stood Still

My Heart Stood Still

Ella Fitzgerald

I laughed at sweethearts I met at schools
All indiscreet 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 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

Through all my school days, I hated boys
Those April Fool days brought me loveless joys
I read my Plato, Love, I thought a sin
But since your kiss, I`m reading Missus Glyn!
