Two Lovers [Bonus Track]

by Eartha Kitt

Eartha Mae Kitt (January 17, 1927 – December 25, 2008) was an American singer, actress, and cabaret star. She was perhaps best known for her highly distinctive singing style and her 1953 hit recordings of "C'est Si Bon" and the enduring Christmas novelty smash "Santa Baby". Orson Welles once called…




I saw two lovers last night
Down where the ships put to sea
One was the image of you
The other was so like me

I saw two lovers last night
While the sea music played
Music that told of farewell
But I was not afraid

Still I can't erase the memory
Of their kiss and last goodbye
A ship on the far horizon
That last long haunting cry

So tell me now my love:
These two that said goodbye
Say that it just couldn't be
No it never could be
The ghosts of you and I

I saw two lovers last night
Down where the ships put to sea
One was the image of you
The other was so like me

I saw two lovers last night
While the sea music played
Music that told of farewell
But I was not afraid

Still I can't erase the memory
Of their kiss and last goodbye
A ship on the far horizon
That last long haunting cry

So tell me now my love:
These two that said goodbye
Say that it just couldn't be
No it never could be
The ghosts of you and I
