“You don’t know what love is”


You don’t know what love is
Until you learned the meaning of the blues
Until you loved the love you’ve had to lose
You don’t know what love is

You don’t know how lips hurt
Until you’ve kissed and had to pay the cost
Until you’ve flipped your heart and you have lost
You dont know what love is

Do you know how a lost heart fears
The thought of suffering
And how lips that taste of tears
Lose their taste for kissing

You dont know how hearts burn
For love that cannot live yet never dies
Until you reached each dawn with sleepless nights
You don’t know what love is

Do you know how a lost heart fears
The thought of suffering
And how lips that taste of tears
Lose their taste for kissing

You don’t know what love is
Until you learned the meaning of the blues
Until you loved the love you had to lose
You don’t know what love is

cantata dalla grande Billie Holiday

“My foolish heart”


The night
Is like a lovely tune
Beware
My foolish heart
How white
The ever constant moon
Take care
My foolish heart

There’s a line between love and fascination
That’s hard to find on an moment such as this
For they all have that very same sensation
When you’re lost in the magic of a kiss

Your lips
Are much too close to mine
Beware
My foolish heart
But should
Our eager lips combine
Then let
The fire start

For this time it isn’t fascination
Or a dream that could fade and fall apart
It’s love
This time it’s love
My foolish heart

There’s a line between love and fascination
That’s hard to find on an moment such as this
For they all have that very same sensation
When you’re lost in the magic of a kiss

Your lips
Are much too close to mine
Beware
My foolish heart
But should
Our eager lips combine
Then let
The fire start

For this time it isn’t fascination
Or a dream that could fade and fall apart
It’s love
This time it’s love
My foolish heart.

My foolish heart


The night is like a lovely tune
Beware my foolish heart
How white the ever constant moon
Take care my foolish heart
There’s a line between love and fascination
That’s hard to see on an evening such as this
‘Cause they all give the very same sensation
When you’re lost in the magic of a kiss

His lips are much too close to mine
Beware my foolish heart
But should our eager lips combine
Then let the fire start
‘Cause this time it isn’t fascination
Or a dream that will fail and fall apart
It’s love this time
It’s love my foolish heart
