VP_009492 Verse 1And now you're going to leave me, Another's won your heart; You tell me with a smile dear, That you and I must part. Have you so soon forgotten All I gave up for you? They told me I'd regret it, And now I know it's true. Chorus 1All Over You I left my home, dear, All Over You I went away. All Over You, And you a lone, dear, My poor heart aches Both night and day. All Over You my friends have left me, You took away the sunshine too. I went home with shattered pride, All alone, knelt down and cried; And I broke my mother's heart all Over You. Verse 2How can I face my mother And look into her eyes; How can I ever tell her That all your vows were lies. I know my life is wasted; No one to call my own. Love's bitter joys I've tasted; Now I must weep alone.
