My heart is longing for you, love
I cared for you more then you knew
Though you have broken each promise
Yesterday's dreams are untrue


Alone, I'll be yearning tomorrow
When sunshine brings memories of you
My sunshine will turn into sorrow
As a dream of the love you once knew


Why should I always be lonesome
When sunny and blue are the skies
While shadows and loneliness linger
I'm dreaming with tears in my eyes


Why did you promise me sweetheart
Never to leave me alone
Yesterday's sunshine is faded
You're love wasn't true like my own


Alone, I'll be yearning tomorrow
When sunshine brings memories of you
My sunshine will turn into sorrow
As a dream of the love we once knew


Why should I always be lonesome
When sunny and blue are the skies
While shadows and loneliness linger
I'm dreaming with tears in my eyes

    General CommentNeedless to say this song it's about a painful break-up. It's the kind of relationship in wich one gives much more than the other one and ends up suffering. My favorite part is: "When sunshine brings memories of you/ My sunshine will turn into sorrow".
    It's very sad!

    General Commentokay, I don't know why this says 'rare' next to it. This song is found on "The Songs of Jimmie Rodgers: A Tribute." It's listed under 'Bono' on that CD.
