I loved you but you left me when your love had died.
My world fell in, my life turned gray and crumpled up inside.
I would have given anything just to have you stay,
anything I owned or did or cared for any way.

Yes, love is very painful, I just sit here and cry.
Love hurts so very much sometimes I want to die.
Even though I loved and I hoped it wouldn't end,
still I wish you all the best, the best to your new friend.

Love is very painful and the pain goes on and on.
Love hurts me all the time ever since you've gone.
I never want you hurt like this. I don't want your tears.
So with all my heart I wish you both many, many happy loveless years.
