-artist: nat king cole
-from his "the greatest of nat king cole" lp-capitol slb 6803
-peak billboard position # 16 in 1954
-words and music by sammy gallop and arthur kent


Someone longs for you and your caress
He's learning now how empty arms can be
Someone who used to know your kiss not long ago
That someone happens to be me

How he misses you and must confess
Without you he's like driftwood on the sea
He's just a dreamer who is still in love with you
That dreamer happens to be me

I'll never know just why we parted
It's more than I can comprehend
I only know when you departed
You started a night that has no end

Perhaps there'll come a time when you're alone
Your heart still haunted by a memory
If then you chance to find there's someone on your mind
I hope it happens to be me



Perhaps there'll come a time when you're alone
Your heart still haunted by a memory
If then you chance to find there's someone on your mind
I hope it happens to be me

I hope it happens to be me
