TOO MUCH IN LOVE TO CARE
Carmen McRae


Once our romance was a gay thing
Now I am only your plaything
It know it's all unfair
But I'm too much in love to care
With every kiss you deceive me
Sooner or later you'll leave me
I know I should beware
But I'm too much in love to care
Time and again I've told myself
Don't feed a fire that is dead
Time and again I scold myself
But my heart pays no heed to my head
Go have your fling with your new love
You'll be forever my true love
Heartaches are hard to bear
But I'm too much in love to care
Time and again I've told myself
Don't feed a fire that is dead
Time and again I scold myself
But my heart pays no heed to my head
Go have your fling with your new love
I'll be forever your true love
Heartaches are hard to bear
But I'm too much in love to care
