Mel Tormé - Harlem Nocturne (Nocturne For The Blues)



A nocturne for the blues played on a broken heart string
It's wailing out the news my baby is gone from me
Dark shadows in the rain, a telephone that won't ring
Just memories remain of lovers that used to be

I miss the laughs and the fun, my spot in the sun
When I was the one, one and only
The music and lights, those wonderful nights
The morning is the time we'd kiss

The laughs and the fun, my days in the sun
They're over and done and I'm lonely
Don't ask me to hide the heartbreak inside
The gleaming spark is gone, the light went dark

This nocturne for the blues took all and left me nothing
Nothing but the blues till baby comes back to me
