I'm Glad There Is You

I'm Glad There Is You
music & lyric by Jimmy Dorsey (left) &
Paul Madeira Mertz

Said I, many times, love is an illusion, a feeling, result of confusion.
With knowing smile and blazing sigh, a cynical so-and-so was I.
I felt so sure, so positive, so utterly unchangingly certain.
But I never was aware of love and you.
And suddenly I realized there was love and you, and I...

In this world of ordinary people, extraordinary people,
I'm glad there is you.
In this world of over-rated pleasures, of underrated treasures,
I'm so glad there is you.

I live to love, I love to live with you beside me.
This role so new, I'll muddle through with you to guide me...

In this world where many many play at love,
And hardly any stay in love, I'm glad there is you.
More than ever, I'm glad there is you...
