Day by Day

By Axel Stordahl, Paul Weston & Sammy Cahn
1945

Long-time collaborators going back to their days together as arrangers in the Tommy Dorsey orchestra, Stordahl and Weston wrote this song for Weston's wife, the late, great Jo Stafford. At the time, Stordahl was working at Columbia Records as Frank Sinatra's arranger, and the young Chairman would soon record the tune, as well. Lyricist Cahn would later write the words for many of Sinatra's later hits in the 1950s.

Lyrics:

Day by day,
I'm falling more in love with you.
And day by day,
My love seems to grow.

There isn't any end to my devotion;
It's deeper, dear, by far than any ocean.

I find that day by day,
You're making all my dreams come true.
So come what may,
I want you to know

I'm yours alone,
And I'm in love to stay,
As we go through the years,
Day by day.
