Ella Fitzgerald – Lover lyrics

Lover, when I'm near you
And I hear you speak my name
Softly in my ear
You breathe a flame

Lover, when we're dancing
Keep on glancing in my eyes
Till love's own entrancing
Music dies

All of my future is in you
Your every plan I design
Promise you'll always continue
To be mine

Lover, please be tender
When you're tender fears depart
Lover, I surrender
To my heart

Lover, it's immoral
But why quarrel with our bliss
When two lips of coral
Want to kiss

I say the devil is in you
And to resist you, I try
But if you didn't continue
I would die

Lover, please be tender
When you're tender fears depart
Lover, I surrender
To my heart
