Short songs

It’s amazing to me how the shortest songs can say so much:

Nearness of You
-Nora Jones

It’s not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me
Oh no
It’s just the nearness of you
It isn’t your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation
Oh no
It’s just the nearness of you

When you’re in my arms and I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams came true
I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you would only grant me the right
to hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night
The nearness of you

Colour My World
-Chicago

As time goes on
I realize
Just what you mean
To me
And now
Now that youre near
Promise your love
That Ive waited to share
And dreams
Of our moments together
Color my world with hope of loving you

Am I listening to these songs because there’s someone I’m thinking about? Honestly, no. I just love how relaxing these songs are, both in melody and words.
