We were so happy, you and I,
Why do we drift apart?
I can’t forget you though I try,
You’re always in my heart,
There’s no one to console me when I’m blue,
There’s no one who can take the place of you.
Though you’ve been gone a little while,
To me it seems like years.
I have forgotten how to smile,
My eyes are filled with tears,
Our old time friends all ask for you in vain, I always say that you’ll be back again.
Lonesome and sorry
Because you went away.
Lonesome and sorry, I miss you more each day.
When night time comes stealing I wonder how you;’re feeling, are you lonesome and sorry
The same dear, as me?
