Steve Lawrence – Portrait Of My Love lyrics

There could never be a portrait of my love
For nobody can paint a dream,
You will never see a portrait of my love,
For miracles are never seen.

Anyone who sees her, soon forgets the Mona Lisa,
It would take I know, a Michaelangelo,
And he would need the glow of dawn to paint the skies above,
To try and paint a portait of my love.

    Didn't know so many singers had recorded "Portrait of My Love." Grand Rapids, Michigan has an Oldies Station (1480 am) on the radio; plays music from the 50's, 60's, and early 70's; I love the beautiful voices that I just took for granted in those years. One morning they played Steve Lawrence singing Portrait of My Love, and I stopped what I was doing, turned up the volumn and just listened. It was just a perfect song for his voice; he sang everything beautifully, but sometimes a singer and song will just hit you more than others do. Thank you for the lyrics!
