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!
