Billie Holiday – Night And Day lyrics

Like the beat, beat, beat of the tomtom
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick, tick, tock of the stately clock
As it stands against the wall
Like the drip, drip, drip of the raindrops
When the summer show'are is through
So a voice within me keeps repeating
You, you, you

Night and day you are the one
Only you beneath the moon and under the sun
Whether near to me or far
It's no matter, darling, where you are
I think of you
Night and day
Day and night

Why is it so
That this longing for you follows wherever I go
In the roaring traffic's boom
In the silence of my lonely room
I think of you
Night and day

Night and day under the hide of me
There's an Oh, such a hungry yearning
Burning inside of me
And it's torment won't be through
'Till you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night
Night and day

Night and day under the hide of me
There's an Oh, such a hungry yearning
Burning inside of me
And it's torment won't be through
'Till you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night
Night and day
