Now she didn’t get off to a very good startAnd she tangled with loveAnd he broke her heartIn a crumbling home had shown the childhood dreams were never realI can along , she was seventeenWith the sun in her eyes and you know what I meanShe grew up too soon in the shade of my loveShe taught me how to feelLoving each other was never enoughShe was watching me grow and she wrote it upIn a book of life she gave to me the day the white ship sailedFarewell my darling , au revoirI will pray every day for youAnd she would stay alone while I’m awayShe wouldn’t walk all alone in the city without meShe would stay aloneShe wouldn’t play in the darkWith this love inside my heartI came home on a summer nightAnd the wind in her hair and she looked just rightThere was never another kind of women could see right through my soulSuddenly after the southern rainShe rode out of my life on the midnight trainAnd I fell to the groundAnd the world became the last place I should beWandering I will wait for youFor the sound of your voiceThe dreams that you makeThe book of life you gave to me still keeps my flame aliveNobody knows which way I’m goingBut I only search for youSo won’t you stay aloneWhile I’m awayIf we both walk in the same direction maybe my eyes will see you one dayStay aloneAnd may your dreams come to beAll your love inside of meStay alone
