Billie Holiday — Solitude lyrics

Duke Ellington / Eddie Delange / Irving Mills

In my solitude
You haunt me
With reveries
Of days gone by

In my solitude
You taunt me
With memories
That never die

I sit in my chair
And filled with despair
There's no one could be so sad
With gloom everywhere
I sit and I stare
I know that I'll soon go mad

In my solitude
I'm prayin
Dear Lord above
Send back my love
