Perry Como circa 1956
 
My Heart Stood Still ~ 1952 Version
 
I laughed at sweethearts, I met at schools
All indiscrete hearts, seemed romantic fools
A house in Iceland was my heart's domain
I saw your eyes, now castles rise in Spain!
 
I took one look at you, that's all I meant to do
And then my heart stood still
My feet could step and walk, my lips could move an' talk
And yet my heart stood still
 
Though not a single word was spoken 
I could tell you knew 
That unfelt clasp of hands, 
told me so well you knew
I never lived at all, 
until the thrill of that moment 
when my heart stood still!
 
< instrumental break > 
 
( Though not a single word was spoken 
I could tell you knew 
That unfelt clasp of hands, 
told me so well you knew . . . )
 
I never lived at all, 
until the thrill of that moment 
when my heart stood still!
