More Than You Know

Here are a couple of choruses of a lovely, for once positive, love song by Vincent Youmans with lyrics by William Rose and Edward Eliscu. Many have recorded this. My favorites are by Benny Goodman and Billie Holiday.

I don’t sing this tune, but whether I play or sing, the lyrics are in my mind, so here they are:

More than you know, more than you know,
Girl o' my heart, I love you so.
Lately I find you're on my mind,
More than you know.

Whether you're right, whether you're wrong,
Girl of my heart, I'll string along.
You need me so
More than you'll ever know.

Loving you the way that I do
There's nothing I can do about it,
Loving may be all you can give but, honey, 
I can't live without it.

Oh, how I'd cry, oh how I'd cry,
If you got tired and said “good-bye,”
More than I'd show
More than you'd ever know.
