As recorded by Billie Holiday with Teddy Wilson & his Orch, June 1st 1937 New York: I'll never be the same, Skies have lost their meaning for me. I'll never be the same, Nothin's what it used to be; And when the songbirds that sing Tell me it's Spring, I can't believe their song. Once love was king, But kings can be wrong! I'll never be the same, There is such an ache in my heart. I'll never be the same Since we're apart; But there's a lot that ba smile can hide, And I know deep down inside I'll never be the same, Never be the same again. (Contributed by Peter Akers - August 2008) ********************* As recorded by RUTH ETTING, 26th July 1932: I'll never be the same Stars have lost their meaning for me I'll never be the same Nothing's what it once used to be And when the songbirds that sing Tell me it's Spring I can't believe their song Once love was king, but kings can be wrong I'll never be the same There is such an ache in my heart Never be the same Since we're apart Though there's a lot that a smile may hide I know down deep inside I'll never be the same I'll never be the same again I make believe I will forget someday Telling myself maybe it's best this way While I pretend, I'm satisfied to have it so In my heart I still know I'll never be the same Stars have lost their meaning to me I'll never be the same Nothing's what it once used to be And when the songbirds that sing Tell me it's Spring Oh, I can't believe in their song For once love was king Aah, but kings can be wrong, wrong, wrong I'll never be the same There is such an ache in my heart Never be the same Since we're apart Though there's a lot that a smile may hide I know down deep inside I'll never be the same I'll never be the same again (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2017)
