Time is a healer but it cannot heal my heart my mind says I've forgotten you and then I feel my heart. The miles lie between us, but your fingers touch my own. You're nearer far away from me, for you're too much my own.
You're nearer than my head is to my pillow. Nearer than the wind is to the willow. Dearer than the rain is to the earth below. Precious as the sun to the things that grow. You're nearer than the ivy to the wall is. Nearer than the winter to the fall is. Leave me, but when you're away you'll know You're nearer for I love you so.
Lyrics: Lorenz Hart Music: Richard Rodgers From the 1940 film version of the Broadway musical TOO MANY GIRLS. Play opened at the Imperial Theatre, New York City October 18, 1939 Director: George Abbott
OH, ONE MORE THING… LIKE GOOD MUSIC? MAD ABOUT GOOD BOOKS? CAN'T GET YOUR FILL? THEN SUPPORT AN ARTIST (me). AND BUY A GOOD BOOK (mine). YOU'RE NEARER THAN YOU THINK. CLICK BELOW! YOU WON’T BELIEVE YOUR EYES.
Remembering Joe Wojcik
Leave me, but when you're away you'll know You're nearer for I love you so.
