​Reaching for the Moon

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Irving Berlin Song Book (1958) and on the album Jazz 'Round Midnight (1991).

The moon and you appear to be
So near and yet so far from me
And here am I on a night in June
Reaching for the moon and you,

I wonder if we'll ever meet
My song of love is incomplete
I'm just the words, looking for the tune
Reaching for the moon and you.

<Instrumental interlude>

I'm just the words, looking for the tune
Reaching for the moon and you.
