LEE AARON lyrics - Private Billie Holiday

LEE AARON
"Private Billie Holiday"

Once in another lifetime
A secret place we'd go
Down by the western seaside
Watching the sun set slow
Oh the sun set slow

I would have crossed the desert
All for one drunken kiss
'Cause you put a smile on my face like Mona Lisa
Funny how love's so fearless

And there we were
So tragic and beautiful
That thing you'd always say
"You're my private Billie Holiday"

Sometimes you'd hold me 'til sunrise
Swaying to old jazz tunes
How could we fail with faith that felt endless
A million dreams so true

Both lost and found in a moment
That gets you and sweeps you away
Changes the course of your life
So tragic and beautiful
That thing you'd always say
"You're my private Billie Holiday"

Once in a blue love letter
You promised to try for me
Why can't life be like a Frank Capra movie
With you and I in the final scene

Life's a wonderful moment
That gets you and sweeps you away
Changes the course of your life
So tragic and beautiful
That thing you'd always say
"You're my private Billie Holiday"
My private Billie Holiday
Private Billie Holiday
