RITA COOLIDGE I CAN'T AFFORD THAT FEELING ANYMORE LYRICS

I used to wait for you to come around
You know I was born lonely
You took the only love I'd ever found
And gave it to another
I don't want to let you go
But by now, I ought'a know

I can't afford that feeling anymore
To lie and wonder what you do
And who you do it for
I can't afford that feeling anymore
To know that someone holds the one
That all my love was for, you know
I can't afford that feeling anymore

It's funny that you chose to call today
And tell me that you love me
I thought I'd finally put those thoughts away
And left the past behind me
While in my mind I can see
Just how good it used to be

I can't afford that feeling anymore
To lie and wonder what you do
And who you do it for
I can't afford that feeling anymore
To know that someone holds the one
That all my love was for, you know
I can't afford that feeling anymore

Now I know why lonely people do
Anything the night has asked them to
Making love to strangers in regret
Because it helps them to forget

I can't afford that feeling anymore
To lie and wonder what you do
And who you do it for
I can't afford that feeling anymore
To know that someone holds the one
That all my love was for, you know
I can't afford that feeling
I can't afford that feeling anymore
To lie and wonder what you do.....


BIOGRAPHY

Most music fans have a favorite song recorded by two-time GRAMMY® award-winner Rita Coolidge― "Fever," "We're All Alone," "One Fine Day," "(Your Love Has Lifted Me) Higher & Higher," "The Way You Do The Things You Do," "All Time High," "Superstar," and so many other memorable tracks that topped the charts from the 1970's onward. It is perhaps due to Coolidge's pop and rock pedigree that many of her fans are unaware of her longstanding affection for jazz, however. Her debut release for Concord Records,And So Is Love, a collection of well-loved jazz standards, is sure to change all that. It will also undoubtedly add a few jazz chestnuts to that lengthy list of songs Coolidge has already made her own.
When Coolidge signed with new management a few years back, she put recording a jazz album on the top of her wish list. "I loved the experience of making my first jazz record with Barbara Carroll in the 1970s," Coolidge recalls, "and I've always loved the jazz singers―Nancy Wilson, Rosemary Clooney, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and especially Peggy Lee, who I have admired since I was three-years old." Coolidge continues, "I've always wanted to get over to the jazz side and am deeply grateful that [Concord Records' executive producer] John Burk believed in me enough to help me make this recording. He should have a star in heaven."
Along with Burk (who most recently spearheaded the multi-GRAMMY winning Genius Loves Company duets project from Ray Charles), And So Is Love was co-produced by legendary bassist and co-founder of the Yellowjackets, Jimmy Haslip. Coolidge says, "I have never met a more talented, funnier, more perfect person. His energy is unbelievable, he's full of life, full of music, and he's passionate about all of it, from the nitty gritty stuff to tracking. Jimmy has amazing ears and has such a gift of bringing the right people into the recording."
