Chet Sings Again

I just keep loving Chet Baker. And I am so sorry that he wasn’t a happy man. But the softness and atmosphere of his songs keep inspiring me. They often go through my head. Like this juwel:

light“Long ago my heart and mind
Got together and designed
The wonderful girl for me
Oh what a fantasy

Thought the ideal of my heart
Can’t be ordered a la carte
I wonder if she will be
Always a fantasy

Will I ever find the girl in my mind?
The one who is my ideal
Maybe she’s a dream and yet she might be
Just around the corner waiting for me

Will I recognize the light in her eyes
That no other eyes reveal
Or will I pass her by and never even know
That she was my ideal

Will I recognize the light in her eyes

That no other eyes reveal
Or will I pass her by and never even know
That she is my ideal”
