I CAN'T PRETEND Lyrics

Artist: Billie Holiday
Album: The Quintessential - Volume 2

Charles Tobias / Paul Rusincky (W. Edward Breuder?)

I can't pretend
I'm sorry we're apart
I can't pretend
I just can't fool my heart
Though I make mine
My friends all seem to realize
Their smiles, that look in my eye
I can't pretend
I simply can't be gayer
For in the end
My tears give me away
Without you dear
I live a lie
I can't defend
I love you
And I can't pretend
