Somewhere there's music
How faint the tune
Somewhere there's heaven
How high the moon

How high the moon

Somewhere there's music
How faint the tune
Somewhere there's heaven
How high the moon

The darkest night would shine
If you would come to me soon
Until you will, how still my heart
How high the moon
