Once You've Been in Love

by Sarah Vaughan

Sarah Lois Vaughan (March 27, 1924 – April 3, 1990) was an American jazz singer, described by Scott Yanow as having "one of the most wondrous voices of the 20th century."

Once You've Been in Love"
Once you awake in someone's arms
Once you have shared the dawn
Once you have glimpsed the face of love that flows, the space of love, you're someone else forever
Once you have dreamed in someone's arms
How can you dream alone?
Once you have known the joys of time, the smiles of time
Can you walk alone across the miles of time?
After you've heard the 'song of songs'
What other song will do?
After your eyes are dazzled by the summer sunlight - oh how long before they grow accustomed to the dark of winter?
Once I belonged in someone's arms
I never felt the cold
And once I believed in someone's arms
That they would always hold me
Once I was sure how real it was
Now I try to pretend it never was
Long to forget it ever was
But with so many memories where do you begin?
Once you've been in love
