Deep Song
Billie Holiday Lyrics


Lonely grief is hounding me
Like the lonely shadow hounding me
It's always there just out of sight
Like a fragling dream on a lightening night

Lonely wind cries out my name
Sad as haunted music in the rain
It's born of grief and born of woe
But I hear it call and I've got to go

Where can I be headed for
The blues call in my north
To lick my heart once more
Love lives in a lonely land
Where there's no helping hand to understand

Why does it bring this hate to me
Why it don't matter why
I only know misery has to be part of me

Never hope to count on love
To be a partner of that heaven above
Never hope to understand
Love is a barren land
A lonely land
A lonely land

Deep Song
Billie Holiday
Lonely grief is hounding me
Like the lonely shadow hounding me
It's always there, just out of sight
Like a fragling tree on a lightening night
Lonely wind cries out my name
Sad as haunted music in the rain
It's born of grief and born of woe
But I hear it call and I've got to go
Where can I be headed for
The blues call it my north to lick my heart once more
Love lives in a lonely land
Where there's no helping hand to understand
Why does it bring this hate to me
Why it don't matter why
I only know misery
Has to be part of me
Never hope to count on love
To be a partner of that Heaven up above
Never hope to understand, love is a barrel land
A lonely land, a lonely land

This was the Lady Day's favorite song according to her closest friends. It wasn't the most famous, but it described her heart better than any. It was one of on the recording I drove my sister and bro in Law mad by playing all night. LOL. Think it was one of the verve.. Anyhow, they loved it too and forgave me. This album was amazing.  "Do your duty", "Crazy in Love", "Nobody's business", Was is verve or Decca? She was fully backed up by an orchestra.

Long before Amy's "Black To Black", there was Lady Day's bleak
overview of love. Utterly brilliant and desolate, no wonder she
was one of Amy's favourite vocalists.
