About I Walk a Little Faster
Cy Coleman had a remarkable career as a songwriter. Not only did he compose some of the great musicals middle 20th century (Sweet Charity, Little Me, and City of Angels to name a few), he also wrote some very fine jazz songs, including this one, co-authored with his long-time songwriting partner, Carolyn Leigh.

Lyrics

Up Madison, down Park, every day and often after dark
Pretending that we’ll meet
Each time I turn a corner, I walk a little faster
Pretending life is sweet
‘Cause love’s around the corner, I walk a little faster
http://discography.bloggingtonybennett.com/songs/i-walk-a-little-faster/
Can’t begin to see my future shine as yet
No sign as yet, you’re mine as yet
Rushing toward a face I can’t define as yet
Keep bumping into walls taking lots of falls

But even though I meet at each and every corner
With nothing but disaster
I set my chin a little higher, hope a little longer
Build a little stringer castle in the air
And thinking you’ll be there, I walk a little faster
