I loved you for a time in New York City We took up a gain in Baltimore Missed you by a day in Oklahoma Left me wond’ring what this all was for Got your letter in Missouri Mine came back to me in Tennessee I lost you on the way to San Francisco That’s the way it always seems to be Well I’ve been so many places I can’t remember And ev’rywhere’s a memory of you I’m tired but I’ll keep on moving Hoping one day I’ll run in to you I’m sitting in a diner drinking coffee I look up as you walk in the door Oh you smile you’re so glad to see me I’ve had this dream a hundred times before I’ve been so many places I can’t remember Ev’rywhere’s a memory of you I’m tired but I keep on moving Hoping someday I’ll run in to you We’ll catch up again in New York City We’ll take a drink and laugh about our past Or maybe you’ll just be a memory Of a happy love that came and went too fast Yeah maybe we’ll just be a memory Of a happy love that came and went too fast

I’ve loved girls from the city and from over the sea, But none so lovely as the one loving me You could offer me diamonds or the stars up above. They would mean nothing without your love. You could offer me diamonds or the stars up above. They would mean nothing without your love. I could search the world over but I’d never find, A love so sweet, gentle and kind I’ve loved you forever though we’ve only met, Ev’ry day gets better. How good can a good thing get? You could offer me diamonds or the stars up above. They would mean nothing without your love. I could search the world over but I’d never find, A love so sweet, gentle and kind A love so sweet, gentle and kind

Rain falls down on me tonight I dream again I’m holding you tight Though things didn’t work out right I’m better for loving you, Baby Better for loving you, Baby Couples pass me in the rain They hush by me then they laugh again The love upon their faces plain Stuck here loving you, Baby And the rain falls down on me tonight I dream again I’m holding you tight Though things didn’t work out right I’m better for loving you, Baby Better for loving you, Baby I stand and watch the rain fall down I listen to the sleepy sound And I’m so aware you’re not around Stuck here loving you, Baby Take this song I give to you There’s nothing you got to do Now I’ll go on and hope and pray You’ll come back some day And the rain falls down on me tonight I dream again I’m holding you tight Though things didn’t work out right I’m better for loving you, Baby Better for loving you, Baby I think about the times we had All the good, all the bad And suddenly I feel so sad Back here loving your, Baby Now take this song I give to you There’s nothing that you got to do Now I’ll go on and hope and pray You’ll come back some day Rain falls down on me tonight I dream again I’m holding you tight Though things didn’t work out right I’m better for loving you, Baby Better for loving you, Baby Yeah, though things didn’t work out right I’m better for loving you, Baby Better for loving you, Baby Better for loving you, Baby

I see you ev’ry day but you never look my way You don’t even know I’m watching you Now I could admit defeat but such an ending’s incomplete Besides there’s nothing else I’d rather do I’m counting the songs that the robin sings around my door and I’m wondering when I’ll share his song with you At night I lay in bed visualising in my head The way I’ll take my chance to make you mine But ev’ry morning’s just the same because this tiger turns out tame Like some old actor who forgets his lines And I’m biding my time like a soldier Till the battle’s done And rifles are for hanging up on walls And I’m counting the songs that the robin sings around my door and I’m wondering when we’ll share his song with you I ought to make my move and fast, this opportunity won’t last Already I’ve been waiting far too long Biding my time like a soldier Till the battle’s done And rifles are for hanging up on walls Counting the songs that the robin sings around my door and Wondering when we’ll share his song with you Wondering when we’ll share his song with you

And here we are together How I’ve waited for this moment to come But now you’re here it’s so clear A new love’s just begun Come into my arms my darling lady How I’ve waited so for you We’ll be in each other’s arms forever Before the night is through Somewhere in the night a bid is calling Calling from his lonely tree-top home He’s crying for the dawn and a love that’s gone He’s so sad to be alone. So Come into my arms my darling lady How I’ve waited so for you We’ll be in each other’s arms forever Before the night is through Come into my arms my darling lady How I’ve waited so for you We’ll be in each other’s arms forever Before the night is through Come into my arms my darling lady How I’ve waited so for you We’ll be in each other’s arms forever Before the night is through

If I told you I love you Would that be O.K.? I want to tell you but I’m scared to I don’t know what you’ll say If you said you felt the same Life would be complete If I took you by surprise Would that mean defeat? I long to tell you how much I love you Ev’ry night and day But come the moment I get so nervous I let it slip away If I saw love in your eyes Then I’d have to speak If you said you loved me too We’d have the love we seek This is crazy, why do I stumble? I can’t eat; I cannot sleep I’m on the cliff edge - the posse’s coming I have to make the leap Now I see the love in your smile, You say you’ve waited weeks No more waiting now We’ve found the love we seek.

SINCE YOU'RE GONE Since you’re gone my life’s turned very neat Since you’re gone the days don’t miss a beat Since you’re gone Life’s so incomplete since you’re gone Since you’re gone morning rolls around Since you’re gone Dawn breaks without a sound Since you’re gone laughter can’t be found Since you’re gone Ever since you left you’re still in my heart Every single mournful day I need you in my arms to brush against your cheek I close my eyes and see you but I fear you’ll slip away Since you’re gone the sparrow’s out of tune Since you’re gone there’s tears across the moon Since you’re gone you left so very soon [STOP! Since you’re gone I remember all the fun And I swear I never saw a brighter sun Since you’re gone how I love my lovely one Since you’re gone the world’s a different place Since you’re gone love fills the empty space Since you’re gone you’ll always have a place Since you’re gone Ever since you left you’re still in my heart Every single livelong day I need you in my arms to brush against your cheek I close my eyes and see you but I fear you’ll slip away Since you’re gone I remember all the fun And I swear I never saw a brighter sun Since you’re gone I still love my lovely one Since you’re gone the world’s a different place Since you’re gone love fills the empty space Since you’re gone you’ll always have a place Since you’re gone You’ll always have a place since you’re gone You’ll always have a place since you’re gone You’ll always have a place since you’re gone
