Lamp Is Low Lyrics by Tommy Dorsey 



Lamp Is Low by Tommy Dorsey


Just As Though You Were Here
Tommy Dorsey with vocal by Frank Sinatra
Written by Eddie DeLange and John Benson Brooks

Peaked at # 6 in 1942



I'll wake each morning and I'll promise to laugh
I'll say "Good morning" to your old photograph
And I'll speak to you, dear
(Just as though you were here)

When purple shadows start to welcome the dark
I'll take the same old stroll we took through the park
And I'll cling to you, dear
(Just as though you were here)

(Oh, don't be afraid that distance and time)
Will finally tear us apart
(The farther you go, the longer you stay)
(The deeper you grow in my heart)

Each night before I wander off into sleep
I'll bring to light the tears I've buried so deep
Then I'll kiss you, my dear
(Just as though you were here)



Each night before I wander off into sleep
I'll bring to light the tears I've buried so deep
Then I'll kiss you, my dear
And though you're gone, my love for you goes on, darling
(Just as though you were here)
