​Lover

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Rodgers & Hart Songbook (1956).

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
You're 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

(Instrumental bridge)

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
