Wish it wasn’t gettin’ colder
Wish the moon would give some light
Wish my head could find a shoulder
It’s kind of lonesome out tonight

Lena Horne & Teddy Wilson — Out Of Nowhere (1941)

You came to me from out of nowhere
You took my heart and found it free
Wonderful dreams, wonderful schemes from nowhere
Made every hour sweet as a flower to me

And if you should go back to your nowhere
Leaving me with a memory
I’ll always wait for your return out of nowhere
Hoping you’ll bring your love to me
