my Husband was listening to this song and suggested i posted it.  I adore Billie Holiday and after listening to the lyrics, i wept.  i am so sorry my darling one.  i choose you. i love you, and only you.

You can’t be mine and someone else’s too
Someday you’ll find I’ve been a friend to you
I don’t believe that life’s worth living
I gave you all there was worth giving
You never cared how I fared or what I do

I called you mine but I was not to blame
For all the time you played up to hand and game
Second hand love I can’t see
It’s good for some but not for me
You can’t be mine and someone else’s too

I called you mine but I was not to blame
For all the time you played up to hand and game
Second hand love I can’t see
It’s good for some but not for me
You can’t be mine and someone else’s too

 

Below is one of my all time faves from Lady Day.  my love, i dedicate this song to you.  xoxo

I’m gonna love you like nobody’s loved you come rain or come shine
High as a mountain and deep as a river come rain or come shine
I guess when you met me it was just one of those things
But don’t ever bet me cause I’m gonna be true if you let me

You’re gonna love me like nobody’s loved me come rain or come shine
Happy together unhappy together and won’t it be fine?
Days may be cloudy or sunny
We’re in or we’re out of the money

But I’m with you always, I’m with you rain or shine

 I’m gonna love you like nobody’s loved you come rain or come shine
High as a mountain deep as a river come rain or come shine
I guess when you met me it was just one of those things
But don’t ever bet me cause I’m gonna be true if you let me

 You’re gonna love me like nobody’s loved me come rain or come shine
Happy together unhappy together and won’t it be fine?
Days may be cloudy or sunny
We’re in or we’re out of the money.

But I’ll love you always, I’m with you rain or shine

Rain or shine.
