Frank Sinatra How Insensitive (Insensatez) Lyrics

Last updated: 06/18/2008 11:00:00 AM

Writer(s): Antonio Carlos Jobim - Ray Gilbert - Vinicius DeMoraes


How Insensitive
I must have seemed
When she told me that he loved me
How unmoved and cold
I must have seemed
When she told me so sincerely
Why she must have asked
Did I just turn and stare in icy silence
What was I to say
What can you say when a love affair is over

Now she's gone away
And I'm alone with the memory of her last look
Vague and drawn and sad
I see it still
All her heartbreak in that last look
Why she must have asked
Did I just stare in icy silence
What was I to do
What can one do when a love affair is over

It can't get amy better! | Reviewer: Jacquelynn | 6/16/2008

Frankie must have loved to sing this song. The emotion that he puts into it is hard to believe. Being a woman I cried at the torment she is going through. Only Sinatra could sing this song with this kind of feeling, nobody else. Thank god for records, cd's dvd's and books that feature the greatest singer of all time. Jackie



Praise | Reviewer: Bernardo | 10/24/2007

"How Insensitve," represents Sinatra at his greatest. The way he puts the emotion into it, makes you feel sorrow for some one you don't even know. Getz is at his best. Bernardo

This song might be the best song ever written about breaking up. Getz,with the tenor sax sound that only he could produce, Jobim,with lyrics that make your eyes moist or Sinatra's golden tones make this a song capable of being played over and over and never let you forget about heartache.Elis Regina also did a sultry arrangement. The song is just plain great
