Can't Get Out of This Mood Lyrics

by Nina Simone

All day long before my eyes
Come little visions of you
They shouldn't
They mustn't, but they do

Can't get out of this mood
Can't get over this feeling

Can't get out of this mood
Last night your lips were appealing
The thrill should have been all gone by today, in the usual way
But it's only your arms that I'm out of

Can't get out of this dream
What a fool to dream of you
'T wasn't part of my scheme to sigh and tell you that I love you
But now I'm saying it, I'm playing it dumb

Can't get out of this mood
Heartbreak here I come

I can't get over this feeling
Last night your lips were appealing
The thrill should have been all gone by today, in the usual way
But it's only your arms that I'm out of

What a fool to dream of you
To sigh and tell you that I love you
But now I'm playing it, now I'm playing it dumb

I can't get out of this mood
Heartbreak, heartbreak here I come
