Billie Holiday DEEP SONG Lyrics

Last updated: 06/11/2009 11:00:00 AM

George Cory / Douglass Cross

Lonely grief is hounding me
Like the lonely shadow hounding me
It's always there just out of sight
Like a frightening dream on a lightning 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 crawl in my door
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 ache to me
Why?
It don't matter why!
I only know misery has to be a 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
