Billy Strayhorn - Lush Life Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • I used to visit all the very gay places
  • those come what may places
  • where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life
  • to get the feel of life
  • from jazz and *****tails
  • the girls i knew had sad and sullen gray faces
  • with distingu? traces
  • that used to be there you could see where
  • they'd been washed away
  • by too many through the day
  • twelve o'clocktails
  • then you came along with your siren's song
  • to tempt me to madness
  • i thought for a while that your pointed smile
  • was tinged with the sadness
  • of a great love for me
  • ah yes i was wrong
  • again i was wrong
  • life is lonely again
  • and only last year
  • everything seemed so assured
  • now life is awful again
  • and the thoughtful of heart
  • could only be a bore
  • a week in paris will ease the bite of it
  • all i care is to smile in spite of it
  • i'll forget you i will
  • and yet you are still
  • burning inside my brain
  • romance is mush
  • stifling those who strive
  • i'll live a lush
  • life in some small dive
  • and there i'll be
  • while i rot with the rest
  • of those whose lives are lonely too
