Billie's Song

Youd lift your voice up to the crowd, chin tilted high
As if to say, Im here, Im proud, Im confident.
But the voice in your head, said
Love me please love me, I need it so bad.
I need it so bad

Not enough love as a child
Not enough love from a man, a woman, an audience, or the whole wide world.
Now we know, Lady Day, it was no picnic,
It was no holiday.


You said, I need a hero
A hero, or heroine, a hero oh, just give me what you got.
I need a hero.
Hero or heroine oh, just give me what you got.

Not enough love as a child.
Not enough love from a man, a woman, an audience, or the whole wide world.
Now we know, Lady Day, it was no picnic,
It was no holiday.
