About Some Other Spring
This song was a favorite of Billie Holiday. This song was composed by her friend Irene Kitchings, wife of bandleader Teddy Wilson.


Some other spring
I’ll try to love
Now I still cling
To faded blossoms
Fresh and worn
Left crushed and torn
Like the love affair I mourn

Some other spring
When twilight falls
Will the night bring
Another to me?

Not your kind
But let me find
It’s not true that love is blind
Sunshine’s around me
But deep in my heart it’s cold as ice
Love, once you’ve found me
But can that story unfold twice?

Some other spring
Will my heart awake
Stirring to sing
Love’s magic music
Then forget that old duet
Find love in some other spring
