Lyrics

Now you've been gone so long I've been so blue I'm lyin here cryin and thinkin of you My heart has been broken and twisted with pain For someone else holds you And whispers your name The day you left me and said We were through I begged and I cried and I pleaded with you My whole world seems dark And now I live in shame For someone else calls you And whispers your name The north wind is blowin And Lord its so cold Your love has destroyed me and tortured my soul Life ain't worth livin since I lost the game For someone else holds you And whispers your name Now my heart is weary My race is almost run I've tried to forget you But you're still the only one My heart has been broken and twisted with pain I wish you'd come callin And whisper my name
