VP_015863 Verse 1Altho' you've left me and I'm feeling blue, Altho' I've loved in vain, Some day your heart will cry out "I love you" Then you'll want me again. Chorus 1After a while you'll be lonely, After a while you'll be blue, You don't mind now 'cause this is the start But later on you'll regret we're apart, After a while you'll be sorry, You fooled me with your smile Your love will burn, Your arms will yearn, After a little while. Verse 2Your fickle heart I know will sigh for me, 'Twill crave the love you miss, Your lips will wish they didn't lie to me They'll want that goodnight kiss.
