Billie Holiday - "Solitude"




Solitude
Duke ellington / eddie delange / irving mills


In my solitude
You haunt me
With dreadful ease
Of days gone by


In my solitude
You taunt me
With memories
That never die


I sit in my chair
And filled with despair
There's no one could be so sad
With gloom everywhere
I sit and I stare
I know that I'll soon go mad


In my solitude
I'm afraid
Dear Lord above
Send back my love
