Let me sigh let me cry
When I'm blue
Let me go 'way
From this lonely town

Won't be long
Till my song will be through
Cos I know
I'm on my last go round

All the love
I could steal beg or borrow
Wouldn't heal
All the pain in my soul

What is love
Only a prelude to sorrow
With a heartbreak ahead
For your goal

Here I go
Now you know why I'm leaving
'Got the blues
What can I lose

Goodbye

What is love
Only a prelude to sorrow
With a heartbreak ahead
For your goal

Here I go
Now you know why I'm leaving
I got the blues
What can I lose

Goodbye
