Lyrics WHEN LOVE LEAVES
AND BREAKS YOUR HEART,
YOUR DREAMS
SIMPLY FALL APART.
YOU'LL SEE A WORLD
SAD AND BLUE,
SO FAMILIAR TO YOU,
YOU'LL LOOK FOR LIPS
THAT YOU ONCE KISSED,
BUT THEY'RE LOST
IN A MIST.
OH, IT'S FUNNY
HOW NOTHING
SEEMS QUITE SO CLEAR
WHEN YOU'RE
LOOKING THROUGH A TEAR.
THE FACE IN THE CROWD
YOU THINK IS HER FACE
SEEMS TO FADE
IN A SHADE
OF LONELY.
YOU WAIT
FOR A CHANCE
TO CATCH
ANOTHER GLANCE,
BUT SHE REALLY
WASN'T THERE.
HER WORDS
LINGER IN YOUR EAR,
GOOD BYE'S
ALL THAT YOU CAN HEAR.
IT COULDN'T HAPPEN
TO YOU,
BUT ALL AT ONCE
LOVE IS THROUGH.
IT'S FUNNY
HOW NOTHING
SEEMS CLEAR,
WHEN YOU'RE
LOOKING THROUGH A TEAR.
