I'm a fool to want you
I'm a fool to want you
To want a love that can't be true
A love that's 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 the Devil has known

Time and time again I said I'd 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'll have to say

I'm a fool to want you
Pity me, I need you
I know it's wrong, it must be wrong
But right or wrong I can't get along
Without you

I can't get along
Without you

    General CommentI can't believe I'm the 1st one to comment on this beautiful song. To me it's just such a wonderful love song. It's pretty short but the progress which the woman goes thru is still pretty much visible. In the beginning she refers to herself as a fool because she is apparently not the only woman the man she has a crush on treats as a lover. However, she realizes that it's impossible for her to escape the man's "charming claws" and so she kind of on her knees in front of this gigolo guy begging him to take her back. She knows that she is dependent (or maybe even addicted to) on the man. Maybe she is sexually depending on him.
    The song might sound sad to an emancipated woman who would never like to say that she is so addicted to a guy but i think the song can also be appllied to a man loving a girl. I think there#s even a version of this son sung by Frank Sinatra.

    General CommentThis is hands down the best song that describes how I feel right now. It could not have been put better into words, or sung with a more appropriate voice. R.I.P. Billie Holiday, you've inspired and helped me through many things.
