It seems like a year
since I've seen you dear
yet I know it's been only a daybut the hours seem long
and the world goes wrong
for it's empty with you away . .
And I wake from each dream
of your loveliness,
to sink once again into loneliness,
and I'd give all the world for just
I'm lonesome, I guess, that's all!<
instrumental bridge >
The faces I see don't appeal to
for it's your face I long for today,
with it's wonderful smile
that makes life worthwhile,
for it drives all my cares away . . .
And I dream of your lips
and your eyes of blue,
and wonder if your heart is dreaming
And my own heart is cryin' the whole
I'm lonesome, for you, that's all!
