Aww, poor Frank!



Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner's (a.k.a The Battling Sinatras) relationship has often been described as stormy, and so it was. The real problem was that they were far too much alike for their own good.

I adore both of them and always find the story completely heartbreaking!

After their break-up (and two months before their subsequent divorce) Frank recorded a song (that he also wrote). The title is: "I'm A Fool To Want You". It's his most personal recording and the pain and heartache practically drips from it. Listening to it, you are listening to Frank pour his heart out.

The lyrics:

I'm a fool to want you
I'm a fool to want you
To want a love that can't be true
A love that's there for others too
I'm a fool to hold you
Such a fool to hold you
To seek a kiss not mine alone
To share a kiss the Devil has known
Time and time again I said I'd leave you
Time and time again I went away
But then would come the time when I would need you
And once again these words I'd have to say
I'm a fool to want you
Pity me, I need you
I know it's wrong, it must be wrong
But right or wrong I can't get along
Without you
Time and time again I said I'd leave you
Time and time again I went away
But then would come the time when I would need you
And once again these words I'd have to say
Take me back, I love you
Pity me, I need you
I know it's wrong, it must be wrong
But right or wrong I can't get along without you...

I think he only wrote two songs, you can only imagine how horrible he must have felt to have written these words!
