Tony Bennett – The Shadow Of Your Smile lyrics

The Shadow Of Your Smile

-* believed to be as recorded by Tony Bennett*
-charted at # 95 in 1965 by him
-Words and Music by Paul Francis Webster and John Mandel
-Academy Award winner from "The Sandpiper" starring Elizabeth Taylor,
-Richard Burton, and Charles Bronson

The shadow of your smile
When you have gone
Will color all my dreams
And light the dawn

Look into my eyes my love and see
All the lovely things you are to me

Our wistful little star
It was far, too high
A teardrop kissed your lips
And so did I

Now when I remember spring
All the joys that love can bring
I will be remembering
The shadow of your smile

*Transcription by Robin Hood from memory using a recording by Frank Sinatra and
Making adjustments back to what he remembers that Bennett sang. (Sinatra had
Added some "curlicues" in his version
