that’s life i guess lyrics – billie holiday

sometimes i wonder what’s in store for me
your love could open heaven’s door to me
but you don’t care a straw for me
that’s life, i guess

my days and nights are stark and hard with you
my sugar kisses taste like salt to you
but why should i find fault with you?
that’s life, i guess

the world was bright when you loved me
sweet was the touch of your lips
the world went dark when you left me
and then there came a total eclipse

n*body knows how cruel fate can be
how close together love and hate can be
goodbye, just clean the slate for me
that’s life, i guess
