my heart stood still lyrics – mamas & the papas

i took one look at you;
that’s all i meant to do.
and then…and then my heart stood still.

my feet could step and walk;
my lips could move and talk…and talk,
and yet…and yet my heart stood still.

though not a single word was spoken
(not a single word was spoken)
i could tell you knew you knew (yeah).
that unfelt clasp of hands, yeah
told me so well, yeah…

i never lived at all until the thrill of that
moment when my heart stood still, yeah—
and i never lived at all until the thrill
of that moment when my heart stood still..
