Don't Ever Love Me

This song is by Harry Belafonte and appears on the album Belafonte Sings Of The Caribbean (1957).

While in that gay tropic isle
I first saw that maiden smile
Though I had failed in the past
I said, "This is true love at last"
But then she whispered to me
That our love never could be

Destiny, oh, when will I see the day?
Hopelessly, I've wandered so long this way
"This could never be", she said pleadingly
Don't ever love me, I'm just fancy-free
"This could never be", she said pleadingly
Don't ever love me

My love was motion and grace
The moonlight soft on her face
I held her close in my arms
My heart was quick to her charms
But then I saw in her glance
It was just an evening's romance

Destiny, oh, when will I see the day?
Hopelessly, I've wandered so long this way
"This could never be", she said pleadingly
Don't ever love me, I'm just fancy-free
"This could never be", she said pleadingly
Don't ever love me
"This could never be" she said pleadingly
Don't ever love me
