I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart    Duke Ellington (1938)

I let a song go out of my heart.
It was the sweetest melody.
I know I lost heaven, 'cause you were the song.

Since you and I have drifted apart,
Life doesn't mean a thing for me.
Please come back, sweet music,
I know I was wrong.

Am I too late to make amends?
You know that we were meant to be more than just friends,
Just friends.

I let a song go out of my heart.
Believe me darling when I say,
I won't know sweet music,
Until you return some day.

Note: this song goes great with "I Don't Get Around Much Anymore"
