My Heart Stood Still - Tony Bennett

I laughed at sweethearts I met at school
All indiscreet hearts
Seemed romantic fools

A house in Iceland
Was my heart's domain
I saw your eyes
Now castles rise in Spain

I took one look at you
That's all I meant to do
And then
My heart stood still

My feet could step and walk
My lips could move and talk
And yet
My heart stood still

Though not a single word was spoken
I could tell you knew
That unfelt clasp of hands
Told me so, well, you knew

I never lived at all
Until the thrill of
That moment when
My heart stood still
