Der Text stellt eine unglückliche Liebe dar:


I never knew what love could do

I never knew I could feel blue

I never knew till I met you

But now I'm learning,

And how I'm yearning,

I gave you all the love I had

I thought that you could make me glad

And now you ask me why I'm sad

I'll tell you why I cry for you



I'm crying 'cause I know you'll break my heart

I'm crying 'cause we're drifting far apart

I'm crying for a little love that's true

Like I gave you - I want it, I want it,

You used to want it too,

I'm crying 'cause you're acting mighty strange

I'm crying just to think how soon you've changed

I ought to hate you - but I love you, love you, love you true,

That's why I'm crying just for you.


I gave up ev'ry friend I knew

I gave up all my pleasures too

Once I would give the world for you

But you decieved me,

And how you grieved me,

You promised some day bye and bye

We'd live in loveland, you and I

You ruined all the dreams I had

And still you ask me why I'm sad
