It Had To Be You

This song is by Elvis Costello and appears on the television soundtrack Boardwalk Empire Volume 2: Music from the HBO Original Series (2013).

Why do I do just as you say?
Why must I just give you your way?
Why do I sigh?
Why don't I try to forget

It must have been that something lovers call fate
Kept me saying I had to wait
I saw them all
Just couldn't fall till we met

It had to be you, it had to be you
I've wandered around, finally found somebody who
Could make me be true
Could make me be blue
And, even be glad just to be sad thinkin' of you

Some others I've seen
Might never be mean
Might never be cross
Or, try to be boss
But, they wouldn't do

For nobody else gave me a thrill
With all your faults, I love you still
It had to be you, wonderful you
It had to be you

Seems like, dreams like I've always had
Could be, should be makin' me glad
Why am I blue?
It's up to you to explain

I'm thinkin' maybe, baby, I'll go away
Someday, somewhere you'll come and say
"It's you I need"
But you'll be breathing in vain

It had to be you, it had to be you
I've wandered around, finally found somebody who
Could make me be true
Could make me be blue
Or even be glad just to be sad thinkin' of you

Some others I've seen
Might never be mean
Might never be cross
Or, try to be boss
But, they wouldn't do

'Cause nobody else gave me a thrill
With all your faults, I love you still
It had to be you, wonderful you
It had to be you

Some others I've seen
Might never be mean
Might never be cross
Or, try to be boss
But, they wouldn't do

For nobody else gave me a thrill
With all your faults, I love you still
It had to be you, wonderful you
It had to be you
