Lyrics
Why was I so wrong when
Everything was right?
I thought that you would long for
My arms to hold you tight.
You never even called or
Stopped to say hello.
So now I'm sad and blue,
While you're just glad to go.

Remember all the times when
You were missing me
Because I'd be gone so long;
But not eternally.
I always turned around to find
My way back home,
But the only thing I found was...
I found myself alone.

I may never find another one to hold me.
I may never find another one so true.
Maybe I'll just never find another you.

[Chorus]
Forever lonely, forever blue,
Forever knowing that you were true,
Forever thinking you'd love me too.
So you've gone, and now I don't
Know what to do.
So I guess I'll always be forever blue.

Will you be so kind as to leave
My heart alone?
That's where it needs to be so
It won't hurt no more.
As long as you're around and
Not here with me,
My smile will be a frown, and
Forever blue I'll be.

I may never find another one to hold me.
I may never find another one so true.
Maybe I'll just find myself all
Sad and lonely.
Maybe I'll just never find another you.
