How can I resist?

Honestly, with a title of Happy Songs (Audra McDonald, Nonesuch, 2002),Audra McDonald this is the album for me. And the lyrics for the song “More Than You Know” are just perfect for today

More Than You Know
(Vincent Youmans/Billy Rose & Edward Eliscue)

Whether you are here or yonder
Whether you are false or true
Whether you remain or wander
I’m growing fonder of you

Even though your friends forsake you
Even though you don’t succeed
Wouldn’t I be glad to take you
Give you the break you need

More than you know
More than you know
Man of my heart I love you so
Lately I find
You’re on my mind
More than you know

Whether you’re right
Whether you’re wrong
Man of my heart
I’ll string along
I need you so
More than you’ll ever know

Loving you the way that I do
There’s nothing I can do about it
Loving may be all you can give
But, honey, I can’t live without it

Oh how I’d cry
Oh how I’d cry
If you get tired and said goodbye
More than I’d show
More than you’ll ever know

One thought on “How can I resist?

  1. I’m so glad that you’re enjoying Audra, dearest. To be honest, there are a few of not-so-happy songs on that album (I’m thinking of “Supper Time”) but I just love her version of “Lose That Long Face”–it never fails to lift my spirits. Nor do you, beloved. Nor do you.
