So Smooth ~ 1955
 
When You're Away  ~ unreleased session recording
 
When you're away dear, 
how weary the lonesome hours . . .
sunshine seems gray dear, 
the fragrance has left the flowers . . .
 
Ever I hear you in seeming
whispering soft love words to me 
Ah if I knew t'were but dreaming 
n'er to be . . .
 
Then, when you're near me 
there's not that I strive to do
save to endear me 
more fondly my love to you . . .
 
Never again let us part dear, 
I'd die without you my own,
hold me again to your heart, 
I love you alone . . .
 
( Never again let us part dear, 
I'd die without you my own . . . )
 
. . . hold me again to your heart, 
I love you alone . . .
 
Love you my own . . . 
love you alone!
