Carmen McRae

Carmen Mercedes McRae (April 8, 1920 – November 10, 1994) was an American jazz singer, composer, pianist, and actress. Considered one of the most influential jazz vocalists of the 20th century, it was her behind-the-beat phrasing and her ironic interpretations of song lyrics that made her memorable. McRae drew inspiration from Billie Holiday, but established her own distinctive voice. She went on to record over 60 albums, enjoying a rich musical career, performing and recording in the United States, Europe, and Japan. more »

The look of love
Is in your eyes
A look your smile can't disguise
The look of love
It's saying so much more
Than words could every say
And what my heart has heard,
Well, it takes my breath away.

I can hardly wait to hold you,
Feel my arms around you.
How long I have waited,
Waited just to love you
Now that I have found you
[You've got]

The look of love
It's on your face
A look that time can't erase
Be mine tonight
Let this be just the start
Of so many nights like this
Let's take a lover's vow
And then seal it with a kiss.

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you,
How long I have waited,
Waited just to love you,
Now that I have found you,
Don't ever go, don't ever go,
I love you so.

We were so in love, and high above
We had a star to wish upon. wish
And dreams come true, but not for me
The trains and boats and planes
Took you away, away from me.

You are from another part of the world,
You had to go back a while and then
You said you soon would return again.
I'm waiting here like I promised to.
I'm waiting here but where are you?

Trains and boats and planes took you a way,
But ev'ry time I see them I pray
And if my prayers can cross the sea,
The trains and the boats and planes
Will bring you back, back home to me.
