our love is here to stay lyrics – billie holiday

george and ira gershwin

the more i read the papers
the less i comprehend
the world with all its capers
and how it all will end.
nothing seems to be lasting.
but that isn’t our affair;
we’ve got something permanent,
i mean in the way we care.

it’s very clear
our love is here to stay;
not for a year
but ever and a day.
the radio and the telephone and the movies that we know
may just be p*ssing fancies,
and in time may go.
but, oh my dear,
our love is here to stay;
together we’re going a long, long way.
in time the rockies may crumble, gibraltar may tumble,
they’re only made of clay,
but our love is here to stay.
