won't you try to forgive
what a fool I would be
if I fooled with your love for me

don't you say that were through
I'd do nothing but grieve
if you ever should leave

(instrumental break)

I'd be unfair to my heart
so whatever you do
don't you say that were through
I'd do nothing but grieve
if you ever should leave
I'd do nothing but grieve
if you ever should leave
