It's over our love affair
Too late now I find I care
His sweet love no more I'll share
Now he's gone I'm alone
I was wrong should have known
Took me home on our last date

I search for a single way
To tell him what I had to say
I kissed him watched him walk away
Set him free foolishly destiny misery
Tragedy on our last date

Took the ring from my trembling fingers
Brushed a tear from my baby's eye
Walked away didn't know that
I'd soon miss him so
Guess I was too young to realize
So blind I couldn't see
How much he really meant to me
And that soon he would always be
On my mind in my heart I was blind from the start
Lost his love on our last date

    Too sad to even think about! I'm glad floyd cramer played last date as an instrumental, because the lyrics would have killed me each time i heard them. The song is a lament -- you can't go back and change the past. Maybe she wanted to tell him how much she loved him and that he deserved better, but was afraid she'd lose him -- but lost him anyway. It could have worked if she had been a bit older -- maybe she was a young teen.

    Young love is filled with strong emotions that are on trial. It can last and grow into true love or die in a moment's decision with lasting regret. Ggd
