i’m a fool to want you lyrics – billie holiday

i’m a fool to want you
i’m a fool to want you
to want a love that can’t be true
a love that’s there for others too

i’m a fool to hold you
such a fool to hold you
to seek a kiss not mine alone
to share a kiss the devil has known

time and time again i said i’d leave you
time and time again i went away
but then would come the time when i would need you

and once again these words i’ll have to say
“i’m a fool to want you
pity me, i need you
i know it’s wrong, it must be wrong
but right or wrong i can’t get along
without you”

i can’t get along
without you
