YouTube video  of Johnny Hartman's rendition of 
I See Your Face Before Me posted by MissQueSeraSera

In a world of glitter and glow
In a world of tinsel and show
The unreal from the real thing is hard to know

I discovered somebody who
Could be truly worthy and true
Yes, I met my ideal thing when I met you

I see your face before me
Crowding my every dream
There is your face before me
You are my only theme

It doesn't matter where you are
I can see how fair you are
I close my eyes and there you are always

If you could share the magic
If you could see me too
There would be nothing tragic
In all my dreams of you

Would that my love could haunt you so
Knowing I want you so
I can't erase your beautiful face before me

- Lyrics and music by Howard Dietz and Arthur Schwartz
