VP_012509 Verse 1Nights are long and life's all wrong since you went away, I don't know just what to do; I don't feel so blue until the end of the day, In my lonely room, I find only gloom. Chorus 1Ev'ry night I cry myself to sleep over you, Weep over you, Gee, but I'm blue. Ev'ry night when twilight shadows creep into view, Like a little baby, I need some love that is true. Darkness appears, Nights seem like years. I wake up in the morning and my pillow is wet with tears; Ev'ry night I pray that some day you'll want me, too, Then I cry myself to sleep over you. Verse 2Ev'ry night I used to dream such wonderful dreams, Sweetheart, when I'd think of you; But it's diff'rent now, my dreams are empty it seems, Ever since the day that you went away.
