Cole Porter - Looking At You Lyrics

Song from "Wake Up and Dream" - 1929 Broadway Musical
Cole Porter - Looking At You Lyrics

I've gone afar, collecting objets d'art
I know the whole game by heart
Why, Joe Duveen
Will tell you what I mean
'Twas I who gave him his start
But since I looked, dear, in your direction
I've quite forgotten my art collection
To be exact
You simply prove the fact
That nature's greater than art

Looking at you
While troubles are fleeing
I'm admiring the view
'Cause it's you I'm seeing
And the sweet honeydew
Of well-being
Settles upon me

What is this light
That shines when you enter
Like a star in the night?
And what's to prevent her
From destroying my sight
When you center
All of it on me?

Looking at you
I'm filled with the essence of
The quintessence of
Joy
Looking at you
I hear poets tellin' of
Lovely Helen of
Troy

Darling, my life was gray
I wanted to end it
Till that wonderful day
When you came to mend it
And if you'll only stay
Then I'll spend it
Looking at you
