Overnight (I Found You)

Lyrics by Billy Rose & Charlotte Kent, Music by Louis Alter

I don’t know why but the thrill is gone
And what was, can’t go on
I only know that the flame is cold
Love was young, now it’s old

Overnight I found you and overnight I lost you
It was sublime now it’s time to stop, goodbye
Love is dead, long live love
The spark has fled, let’s give love
A friendly tear, quite sincere and sigh, goodbye

There was a dream an intimate dream we used to share
Then I awoke and suddenly found a stranger there

Overnight I found you and overnight I lost you
Now let’s agree, gracefully, to sigh, goodbye

Overnight I found you and overnight I lost you
Now let’s agree, gracefully, to sigh, goodbye

  2. Hi John! If you search on YouTube you can find other artist’s versions of this song. So far I don’t think it’s available with Ruth Etting singing, but you never know! Someone might have a copy and upload it at any time!
