What Will I Tell My Heart? Lyrics – Ella Fitzgerald

I’ll try to explain to friends dear
The reason we two are apart
I know what to tell our friends dear
But what will I tell my heart?

It’s easy to say to strangers
That we played the game from the start
It’s easy to lie to stranger
But why will I tell my heart?

When I smile to hide all the tears inside
What an ache it will bring
Then I’ll wander home to a telephone
That forgot how to ring

I could say you’ll soon be back dear
To fool the whole town may be smart
I’ll tell them you’ll soon be back dear
But what will I tell my heart?

I’ll try to explain to friends dear
The reason we two are apart
I know what to tell our friends dear
But what will I tell my heart?
Oh baby what will I tell my heart?
