I thought I was through missing you
I thought I was through being blue
And then someone mentioned your name
Some careless friend just chanced to say
That they saw you the other day
And they said you looked just the same.

Then I remembered your arms and how they held me dear
But the memory only brought me that same old empty fear
Now I'm right back where I started that awful day we parted
And all because they mentioned your name
I told myself the hurt was gone
That not one memory lingered on.

And then someone mentioned your name
They didn't mean to tear away
The veil that hid my yesterday
But there it was with all the same old pain.

For I remembered your kiss on the day we said goodbye
Was the last glowing ember of a flame that had to die
Now I'm right back where I started that awful day we parted
And all because they mentioned your name...
