Billie Holiday – One Never Knows, Does One? lyrics

Mack Gordon / Harry Revel

One never knows, does one?
When love will come along
Then so suddenly life turns out to be a song

One never knows, does one?
The moment or the place
Then right before your eyes
Someone occupies your embrace

Someday look and you'll find
Two hearts were blest
Someday fate may be kind
Pray for the future
Hope for the best
One never knows, does one?

That's just the way it goes
All at once you hear
"Hold me. Caress me"
And then love may come
But when, one never knows
