i understand lyrics – nat king cole

yes, i understand that i’m to set you free
yes, i understand you love her more than me
i understand she won your heart
stoled your love, drew us apart
i understand and so i’ll let you go

i tried my best to do the things
i thought would please you, dear
i never dreamed the time would come
when you would not be here

yes, i understand what i’m supposed to do
find me someone else to take the place of you
and if i live a hundred years
i’ll find some way to hide these tears
i understand and so i’ll let you go

i tried my best to do the things
i thought would please you, dear
i never dreamed the time would come
when you would not be here

yes, i understand what i’m supposed to do
find me someone else to take the place of you
and if i live a hundred years
i’ll find some way to hide these tears
i understand and so i’ll let you go
