You made me leave my happy home
You took my love and now you're gone
Since I fell for you

Love brings such misery and pain
I guess I'll never be the same
Since I fell for you

It's too bad it's so sad
I'm in love with you
You love me then you snug me
But what can I do I'm still in love with you

I guess I'll never see the lights
I get the blues 'bout every night
Since I fell for you
Since I fell for you
