This Bitter Earth

The Essential Dinah Washington: The Great Songs, 2 minutes

This Bitter Earth
  • This Bitter Earth


Dinah Washington

This bitter earth
What fruit it bears
What good is love
That no one shares?
And if my life is like the dust
That hides the glow of a rose
What good am I?
Heaven only knows

This bitter earth
Can it be so cold?
Today you're young
Too soon your old
But while a voice
Within me cries
I'm sure someone
May answer my call
And this bitter earth
May not be so bitter after all
