I LIVE ALONE
Robin Redd with the Gordon Jenkins Orchestra
I live alone ...
I do my nails and change the furniture around ...
I feed the dog and see that all the clocks are wound ...
I dust a chair, I wash my hair ...
I wouldn't dare to let my foolish fancies wander to the past.
My life's a play with just one person in the cast,
Although it's true there once were two.
His eyes were blue as midnight,
And his smile was brighter than noon,
But still, I sent him away too soon.
He was young and strong - he loved me,
And his kiss was sweeter than spring.
I guess I did the right thing.
I wonder ...
Well, anyway ...
I live alone,
Although quite often I get restless and decide
To get my bag and put my travelin' clothes inside
And take a plane, and see the Seine,
Or go to Spain for tea.
But when it's time to leave, I weaken -
I realize that I must stay.
So I unpack -
He might come back
