Let the camera linger on your perfect skin
Your windows peak and your lucky grin
And the bluest eyes I know
As you turn to go

Let there be a record of your gorgeous voice
The turn of phrase that filled my days with joy
Something like Bing singing soft and low
As you turn to go

I know I'm not supposed to say I'm sorry
I know you've had more loves than Mata Hari
But you know you're the star of my life story
And I'm so sorry

Let the poets struggle to describe your heart
Your art of love, and your love of art
Well if you ever loved me tell me so
As you turn to go

    General Comment...did he cheat on her? She's going cuz he did something to her and he's apologizing. When you cheat, you're not really supposed to say you're sorry. You shoulda known the consequences but you did it anyway. So what's an apology worth? He loves all about her and her presence and really does love her but she's leavin'. "Well if you ever loved me tell me so" I love that line. He loves her, but even though he cheated on her and let such a good thing be ruined, if she would just tell him that she did once love him then he'd be grateful. And this song was in "Camp", I believe. Love this song.

    General CommentI don't think the speaker cheated, or at least I never got that feeling. From the Mata Hari line, I always thought the person in question just got tired of the relationship. Plus, when you cheat, you should say you're sorry, not that it helps but you are in the wrong.
