“It’s a nice face, as faces go.
It’s a very nice face.
With a place for every feature, every feature in its place.
Not a common place face.
His eyes, blue. (okay, so this part is wrong)
His chin, stubborn and stong.
His ears, well, they’re ordinary ears.
His nose, a little long.
…Don’t make this a federal case
It’s just another pretty face.
Still…it’s a very, very, very nice face.”
“The Nearness of You”, written by Hoagy Carmichael and Ned Washington (1940).

And the way you touch
I lose control and shiver deep inside
You take my breath away”.
