IF YOU SEE A FRIEND AND HE TRIES TO SAY
A GIRL WE ONCE KNEW IS LOSING HER WAY
IT’S TRUE. I MAY BE BLUE
BUT I’VE SEEN THE BEST YEARS OF LIFE GO THROUGH
A MAN THAT I LOVED AND ANOTHER I NEED
BOTH MEN HAVE HELPED MAKE THE SAD LIFE I LEAD
SORROW LIVES HERE IN MY HEART
IT HAUNTS ME
WHEN I SLEEP I CAN’T KEEP THE THOUGHT OF YOU FROM MY DREAMS
EVERYTHING SEEMS TO SPIN AROUND
BUT I CAN’T SEE WHETHER IT HAPPENS WITH OR WITHOUT ME

REMEMBER HOW PERFUME, MY GOWN, AND SILK GLOVES
HAD TEASED YOUR HEART SO AND BROUGHT OUT YOUR LOVE
IT’S DONE. NIGHT’S BREEZE HAS BLOWN
A CHILL UP MY SPINE THE WORLD WAS MINE
THEN HAUGHTY AND HIGH TO BIDE MY TIME
TILL ALL OF MY HOPES JUST WISH YOU WERE MINE
SORROW LIVES HERE IN MY HEART
IT HAUNTS ME
WHEN I SLEEP I CAN’T KEEP THE THOUGHT OF YOU FROM MY DREAMS
EVERYTHING SEEMS TO SPIN AROUND
BUT I CAN’T SEE WHETHER IT HAPPENS WITH OR WITHOUT ME

COMMENT:
Pure and simple blues.
Looking back now, I don’t think I could tolerate writing my own sad song.
Didn’t want to go that deep.  
Then.
