Where or When
Babes in Arms
Diana Krall plays piano and sings "Where or When," the beautiful love song from Babes in Arms, a 1937 musical by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. The story involves a group of teenagers who put on a stage revue to avoid going to a work farm. (This is no amateur production; choreography is by George Balanchine.)
Ms. Krall is one of the foremost jazz singers today, having been recognized as near the top of the list of Billboard's jazz artists of the decade, 2000 to 2009. She's not only an excellent pianist and vocalist, but has also been lyricist for Elvis Costello, another noted jazz musician, who also happens to be her husband.
Sometimes you think you've lived before
All that you live today
Things you do come back to you
As though they knew the way
Oh, the tricks your mind can play!
It seems we stood and talked like this before
we looked at each other in the same way then,
But I can't remember where or when.
The clothes you're wearing are the clothes you wore.
The smile you are smiling you were smilimg then,
But I canÍt remember where or when.
Some things that happen for the first time,
Seem to be happening again.
Amd so it seems that we have met before
and laughed before
and loved before,
But who knows where or when.
