D  D9   D   G  GM7 G6
I took one look at you,

D      D9  D   G  GM7 G6
That's all I meant to do,

Dalt G   D   G/B  A7/9    D    Bm7  Bb9  A7
And then my heart stood still!

D  D9    D     G   GM7 G6
My feet could step and walk,

D   D9    D    G   GM7 G6
My lips could move and talk,

Dalt G  D   G/B  A7/9    D
And yet my heart stood still!

Dm        D9 Dm              
Though not a single word was spoken, 

        Gm  Fdim  A7
I could tell you knew --

Dm      D9   Dm
That unfelt clasp of hands 

           A7+5 A7
Told me so well you knew.

D  D9   D   G   GM7 G6
I nev - er lived at all

D    D9   D    G   GM7  G6
Un - til the thrill of that 

Dalt  G    D   Em7 G/B  A7/9    D
Mo - ment when my heart stood still.
