(Why Couldnt It Last) Last Night
Glenn Miller
Written by Austen Croom, Johnson, Nick Kenny and Charles Kenny

As recorded by the Glenn Miller Orchestra on September 11th, 1939 with Ray Eberle

Last night, I touched your fingertips
And when I touched your lips
I fell in love last night...

Last night, I felt your heart beat fast
Swiftly the moments passed
Why couldnt it last last night?

Tonight here I am all alone
My lovely dream has flown
Why must I be alone?

Last night, why did we say goodbye?
My heart keeps asking why,
Why couldnt it last last night...?
