when your lover has gone lyrics – billie holiday

when you’re alone, who cares for starlit skies?
when you’re alone, the magic moonlight dies
at break of dawn there is no sunrise
when your lover has gone

what lonely hours the evening shadows bring
what lonely hours with memories lingering
like faded flowers life can’t mean anything
when your lover has gone

when you’re alone, who cares for starlit skies?
when you’re alone, the magic moonlight dies
at break of dawn there is no sunrise
when your lover has gone

what lonely hours the evening shadows bring
what lonely hours with memories lingering
like faded flowers life can’t mean anything
when your lover, when your lover has gone
