Frank Loesser – Heart And Soul lyrics

Heart and soul, I fell in love with you,
Heart and soul, the way a fool would do,
Because you held me tight,
And stole a kiss in the night...

Heart and soul, I begged to be adored,
Lost control, and tumbled overboard,
That magic night we kissed,
There in the moon mist.

Oh! but your lips were thrilling, much too thrilling,
Never before were mine so strangely willing.

But now I see, what one embrace can do,
Look at me, it's got me loving you,
That little kiss you stole,
Held all my heart and soul.

    My husband was a musician and sang the lyracs to me as he played the piano before we were married. I didnt' realize it had these lyrics so it was a surprise and lovely to hear. He sat in with the band at our reception and had them all play it while he seranaded me. That was only 3. 5 years ago, he passed away this past feb from cancer and of course many of the things I took for granted now mean more. Wish I could hear him sing it again!

    There are some very brave people who love to write songs about their loved ones. He must really like his wife. I think that this can have many meanings though. This is just my opinion. Post what you think this means and you might help someone and write there own song or even much more! Also this person think that his wife is very good to him so he is writing this song in honor of what he thinks in his wife. She must be fabulous and spectacular. You may have a different meaning thought so I would like to see you post what you think. Have a blast! I hope this helped! If It did tell me and maybe even post your own to help someone else! Good bye!? Like mine or dislike mine?!

    This song to me means that someone has fell in love over a kiss and realizes that the person is very valuable to their love. He or she realizes that they love this person that this person is singing to. This song is very valuable to anyone singing this. This will be perfect for a qeedweeding because it sin a way shows that the person someone fell in love with has their devotion (heart and soul) forever. This song is true definition of love devotion, and close relationship. This song would be good for relationship this could show someone in your relationship. This will show that you care and that you love this person.

    This is a very cute song, because it shows his love for his wife. He must have loved her a lot to write a song about her. My friends would sing this song, when they would get together. I like this song, because it shows his lobe for his wife and appreciates her.
