let’s call a heart a heart lyrics – billie holiday

when we’re in a friendly situation
my conversation may not be smart
but if we’re to have a perfect understanding
let’s call a heart a heart
there are words that should be whispered gent@y
that’s evidently the way to start
if i tell you what my dreams have been demanding
let’s call a heart a heart

can i prove how i yearn
just by the turn of a phrase
can i keep my control
when all my soul is aflame
maybe we’d call a true confession
and in discretion on someone’s part
but if i’m to say how madly i adore you
let’s call a heart a heart
