The ballroom was quiet and empty
The band it had played the last waltz
The beautiful moonbeams from heaven
O'er lovers so softly did fall.

A boy from the band saw me standing
And down o'er the floor made his way
Are you waiting your sweetheart he asked me
Then to him those words I did say.

When that someone you love doesn't love you
And you are lonely and sad
Fate dealt a hand and you've lost it
The best pal that you ever had.

Each appeal that you made was a failure
Your romance had come to the end
And that someone you love doesn't love you
That's when your heartaches begin.

--- Instrumental ---

When that someone you love doesn't love you
And you are lonely and sad
Fate dealt a hand and you've lost it
The best pal that you ever had.

Each appeal that you made was a failure
Your romance had come to the end
And that someone you love doesn't love you
That's when your heartaches begin...
