Now listen to me honey
While I say
How could you tell me that you're going away
Don't say that we must part
Don't break my aching heart
You know I've loved you truly many years
I loved you night and day

How could you tell it to me
Can't you see my tears
Now listen while I say

After you've gone
And left me crying
After you've gone
There's no denying

You feel blue
You feel sad
You'll miss the bestest pal you ever had

There'll come a time
Now don't forget it
There'll come a time
When you'll regret it

Someday when you grow lonely
Your heart will break like mine and you'll want me only
After you've gone
After you've gone away

After you've gone
After the break up
After you've gone
You'll wanna wake up
And you will find that you were blind
To let somebody come and change your mind

After the years we've been together
The joy and all the tears
In all nights of weather

Someday when you've departed
You'll long to be with me right back where we started
After you've gone
After you've gone away

Oh babe think what you're doing
You know my love for you will drive me to ruins
After you've gone
After you've gone away

    General Commentfell in love with this song since the first time, her voice is amazing, and i love how she makes it her own way.i can never really get tired of hearing it
    i think that my favorite part is
    "someday when you grow lonely
    you heart will break like mine and you'll want me only"
    so simple but yet amazing

    General Commenti think it's 'in all types of weather' instead of 'in all nights of weather'
