There's a Lull in My Life

  At summer’s end I get a little bored and so it seemed to fit the mood to pull out the sad, languid There’s a Lull in My Life.  It’s not one of the better known standards, but I’ve always liked the melodic line and remembered hearing Ella Fitzgerald singing it on an album with Oscar Peterson.

      The music and lyrics are by Harry Revel and Mack Gordon, the songwriting team that also wrote, among other things Stay as Sweet as You Are and Did You Ever See a Dream Walking?   Click on the title in red to hear it.  The lyrics are below.

 There's a Lull in My Life

 Oh, there’s a lull in my life

It’s just a void and empty place

When you are not in my embrace.

Oh, there’s lull in my life

The moment that you go away

There is no night there is no day.

The world stops turning,

The clock stops ticking

Evr’ything stops but the flame in my heart

That keeps burning, burning, oh, oh,

Oh, there’s a lull in my life

No matter how I may pretend

I know that you alone can end

The ache in my heart,

The call in my arms

The lull in my life.
