carelessly lyrics – billie holiday

charles f. kenney / nick kenney / n. ellis

how carelessly
you gave me your heart
and carelessly i broke it, sweetheart
i took each tender kiss you gave to me
every kiss made you a slave to me

then carelessly
i told you good-bye
but now at night i wake up and cry
i wish i knew a way to find the love
i threw away so carelessly
