It's not the pale moon that excites me,
That thrills and delights me, oh, no -
It's just the nearness of you.

It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation, oh, no -
It's just the nearness of you.

When you're in my arms,
And I feel you so close to me,
All my wildest dreams come true.

I need no soft lights to enchant me,
If you'll only grant me the right
To hold you ever so tight,
And to feel in the night
The nearness of you.
