Love lies bleeding
Love came and warmed my heart,
But my love, she went away,
And left behind no little part
Of the joys of yesterday.
Is this the great white feeling?
Would I want it once again? So
Not while my love lies bleeding
Like the falling of the rain.
She was my life, she was my light,
Now my days are dark as death;
And now that she’s gone out of sight
I find I have no faith.
I can’t believe she led me on
And was only having fun;
Maybe she’ll hear my September song
And know that she’s my vanished sun.
Seems like she’ll haunt me always,
Seems like I’ll never forget
Her eyes, her words, her peculiar ways,
Each one of them a sharp regret.
