INTRO
All day long before my eyes come little visions of you
They shouldn't, they mustn't, but they do, they do


And I can't get out of this mood, can't get over this feeling
Can't get out of this mood, last night your lips were too appealing
The thrill should have been all gone by today in the usual way
But it's only your arms I'm out of

Can't get out of this dream, what a fool I was to dream of you
'twasn't part of my scheme to sigh and tell you that I love you
But I'm sayin' it, I'm playin' it dumb
Can't get out of this mood, heartbreak, here I come



The thrill should have been all gone by today in the usual way
But it's only your arms I'm out of

Can't get out of this dream, what a fool I was to dream of you
'twasn't part of my scheme to sigh and tell you that I love you
But I'm sayin' it, yes, I'm playin' it dumb
Can't get out of this mood, heartbreak, here I come

This mood, can't get out of this mood, can't get out of this mood
