you’re too lovely to last lyrics – billie holiday

teddy mcrae / c. beal / e. fraser

just when you are near
when i hold you fast
then my dreams will whisper
you’re too lovely to last.

lips are saying “love”
all worries have p*ssed
and then i get that feeling
you’re too lovely to last.

will i ever know a real love?
so i can forget you
will i always have to still love?
what am i to do?

soon the night is gone
dreams are fading fast
then i wake up knowing
you’re too lovely to last.

will i ever know a real love?
so i can forget you
will i always have to still love?
what am i to do?

soon the night is gone
dreams are fading fast
then i wake up knowing
you’re too lovely to last
baby you’re too lovely
you’re much too lovely to last
