what will i tell my heart? lyrics – ella fitzgerald

i’ll try to explain to friends, dear
the reason we two are apart
i know what to tell our friends, dear
but what will i tell my heart

it’s easy to say to strangers
that we played a game from the start
it’s easy to lie to stranger
but what will i tell my heart

when i smile to hide all the tears inside
what an ache it will bring
then i’ll wander home to a telephone
that forgot how to ring

i could say you’ll soon be back, dear
to fool the whole town may be smart
i’ll tell them you’ll soon be back, dear
but what will i tell my heart

i’ll try to explain to friends, dear
the reason we two are apart
i know what to tell our friends, dear
but what will i tell my heart

oh, baby, what will i tell my heart
