I sing a song with my heart tearing apart
Saying goodbye to you right after we start
I thought you’ll take care of my own dear heart.
I thought it pays to be intellectually smart.
I tried to be beautiful, loving, and faithful,
Your heart, I never reached, but still, I am hopeful
That one day, you’ll glance with a smile that’s meaningful
That never happened, that makes my heart sorrowful.
Now it’s time for me to bid you goodbye,
I know that another girl had caught your eye
I just hope that once in a while, you’ll look at me and smile
As I move on with life’s sad lullaby.
