Lyrics
LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME
Billie Holiday
(Walter Donaldson / Gus Kahn)

This affair is killin' me
I can't stand uncertainly
Tell me now I've got to know
Whether you want me to stay or to go

Love me or leave me
Or let me be lonely
You won't believe me, I love you only
I'd rather be lonely
Then happy with someone else

You might find the night time
The right time for kissin'
But night time is my time
For just reminiscin'
Regrettin' instead of forgettin'
With somebody else

There'll be no one
Unless that someone is you
I intend to be independently blue
I want your love
But I don't want to borrow
To have it today to give it back tomorrow
For your love is my love
There's no love for nobody else
