My troubled old heart dear is beating with pain
You've gone and I know I'm the one who's to blame
You've gone in the world dear to make a new start
And left as a mem'ry you're brand on my heart.
They say you were crying while packing your things
And left me your locket and bright golden rings
The plans for your future I've broken apart
Now all I have left is you're brand on my heart.
You say you are sorry it ended this way
And that I'll find someone to love me someday
Another to cherrish the love we once knew
But darling that someone can only be you.
--- Instrumental ---
The flowers you planted that rose you loved best
It's dark velvet petals are now closed in death
The birds have hushed singing it all plays a part
To deepen the wound of you're brand on my heart.
I'm appealing to you for forgiveness today
For all of your tears darling I've had to pay
If you'll just forgive me we'll make a new start
And no more will I carry you're brand on my heart...
