About I’m a Fool to Want You
Though Frank Sinatra was one of songwriters and sung it as well, “I’m a Fool to Want You” may be most identified with Billie Holiday, who recorded it 1958 for her album Lady in Satin.

Lyrics

I’m a fool to want you
I’m a fool to want you–
To want a love that can’t be true,
A love that’s there for others, too

I’m a fool to hold you–
Such a fool to hold you–
To seek a kiss not mine alone
To share a kiss that the Devil has known

Time and time again, I said I’d leave you
Time and time again, I went away;
But then would come the time when I would need you,
And once again these words I’d have to say:

I’m a fool to want you
Pity me, I need you
I know it’s wrong; it must be wrong…
But right or wrong, I can’t get along
Without you

Time and time again, I said I’d leave you
Time and time again, I went away;
But then would come the time when I would need you,
And once again these words I’d have to say:

Take me back…I love you
Pity me, I need you
I know it’s wrong; it must be wrong…
But right or wrong, I can’t get along
Without you.
