Billie Holiday / I'm a fool to want you

Billie Holiday

This song is from Billie`s final album "Lady in Satin" completed and released in her lifetime.
Ray Ellis said of the album:
"I would say that the most emotional moment was her listening to the playback of "I'm a Fool to Want You". There were tears in her eyes...After we finished the album I went into the control room and listened to all the takes. I must admit I was unhappy with her performance, but I was just listening musically instead of emotionally. It wasn't until I heard the final mix a few weeks later that I realized how great her performance really was."

I` m a fool to want you

I` m a fool to want you
I` m a fool to want you
To want a love that cant be true
A love thats there for others too

I` m a fool to hold you
Such a fool to hold you
To seek a kiss not mine alone
To share a kiss that devil has known

Time and time again I said Id leave you
Time and time again I went away
But then would come the time when I would need you
And once again these words I had to say

Take me back, I love you
...i need you
I know its wrong, it must be wrong
But right or wrong I cant get along...
........Without you.......
