says my heart lyrics – billie holiday

frank loesser / burton lane

fall in love, tall in love
says my heart,
it’s romance, take a chance
says my heart
but each time that i’m almost in your arms
this old schoolteacher brain of mine
keeps bringing in false alarms
then my head rolls instead and i’m wise
to the scheme of that gleam in your eyes
so i kiss and run
but the moment we’re apart
“oh! you fool, that was love”
says my heart

then my head rolls instead and i’m wise
to the scheme of that gleam in your eyes
so i kiss and run
but the moment we’re apart
“oh! you fool, that was love”
says my heart.

it wasn’t the moon, it wasn’t the stars
“that was love!”
says my heart
