Oh, it's been a long, long time
Looks like to get you off my mind but I can't
Just the thought of you, ooh, oh babe, just the thought of you
Turns my whole world a misty blue

Just the mention, just the mention of your name, yeah
Turns a flicker to a flame, listen to me good
I think of the things, oh, I think of the things we used to do
And that's when my whole world
Oh, my whole world turns misty blue, yeah

I should forget you, heaven knows I've tried
But when I say I'm glad we're through
My heart, my heart knows I've lied, I've lied
Oh, I'm glad we're through
Yes, but my heart knows, my heart knows I've lied, yes

Just the mention, just the mention of, of your name, yeah
Turns a flicker to a flame, listen to me good
I think of the things, I think of the things we used to do, yeah
That's when my whole world, my whole world turns misty blue
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah
And I, I should forget you, heaven knows, heaven knows I've tried
But when I say I'm glad we're through
That's when my heart knows
That's when my heart knows that I've lied and I've lied and I lied

Oh, oh, it's been such a long, long, long, long time, babe
Looks like I can't get you
I'm gonna get you off my mind but I can't, oh no
Just the thought of you, just the thought of you
Turns my whole world, it turns my whole world
Just the thought of you, just to think of you
Just the thought of you
Turns my whole world misty, misty blue
