"What Am I Here For?" as written by Duke Ellington and Frankie Laine....
What am I here for living in misery
Now that you've gone from my heart
That was my fear for you were my future
There was no reason to part

Still I hope you'll change your mind
And that somehow you will find
You were meant to be my only
I'll be lost if I'm alone

I know you remember all that you told me
Times when you'd hold me so tight
How could you grieve me, how could you leave me
Knowing your love is my light

In your heart there should be thoughts
That you'll return to me
I will be happy, patiently waiting
Knowing then just why I am here

What am I here for living in misery
Now that you've gone from my heart
That was my fear for you were my future
There was no reason to part

Still I hope you'll change your mind
And that somehow you will find
You were meant to be my only
I'll be lost if I'm alone

I know you remember all that you told me
Times when you'd hold me so tight
How could you grieve me, how could you leave me
Knowing your love is my light

In your heart there should be thoughts
Of your return to me
I will be happy patiently waiting
Knowing then just why I am here
