I was all right for a while
I could for a while
But I saw you last night, you held my hand so tight
As you to say "Hello"
Oh you wished me well, you couldn't tell

That I'd been cry-i-i-i-ng over you
Cry-i-i-i-ng over you
Then you said "so long", left me all alone
Alone and crying, crying, crying cry-i-ing
It's hard to understand but the of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was you
But it's tru-ue, so true
I love you even more than I did before
But darling what can I do-o-o-o
For you don't love me and I'll be

Cry-i-i-i-ng over you, cry-i-i-i-ng over you
Yes, now you're gone and from this moment on
I'll be crying, crying, crying, cry-i-i-ing
Yeah crying, crying, o-o-o-o-ver you
