I'll never understand why virtually every recording
of this song omits the best last verse...
You gave me days of sunshine
You gave me nights of cheer
You made my life an enchanted dream
'Til somebody else came near
Somebody else came near you
I felt the winter's chill
And now I sit and wonder night and day
Why I love you still

De-Lovely: the musical biography of Cole Porter. I would love to live a life so glamorous and wildly unconventional; so driven by music and the need to experience love in it’s every form. “The physical part could come and go, but the intimacy was stunning.”

One of the many scenes that always makes me cry in this movie. ;_;

In the still of the night
As I gaze from my window
At the moon in its flight
My thoughts all stray to you…

Do you love me, as I love you
Are you my life to be, my dream come true
Or will this dream of mine fade out of sight
Like the moon growing dim, on the rim of the hill
In the chill, still, of the night.

In honor of Valentine’s Day and my crappy day, I’m counting down my favorite Valentine’s Day Songs.

4. Night and Day by Cole Porter

Time marches on, and soon it’s plain
You’ve won my heart and I’ve lost my brain.
It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s de-lovely.

Life seems to sweet that we decide
It’s in the bag to get unified.
It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s de-lovely.

—  Cole Porter “It’s DeLovely.” Porter, was a genius.
