IT'S LIKE REACHING FOR THE MOON
Lewis / Marquese / Sherman
as rec by Billie Holiday w Teddy Wilson & his Orch
June 30th 1936 New York
It's like reaching for the moon,
It's like reaching for the sun,
It's like reaching for the stars, reaching for you.
You're so far above me,
How can I expect an angel to love me?
It's so divine as you are!
It's like flying without wings,
Playing fiddle without strings,
And a million other things no-one can do.
Though my hopes are slender,
In my secret heart I pray you will surrender soon,
Though it's like reaching for the moon!
