I try to reason and I tell myself you'll return
But you are gone and I know, I know, I know you're gone
You were mine for only a minute and if I hurt you I didn't intend it

You are gone away, I keep telling my mind
You're not gonna stay
Yet I believe sometimes that I've lost you, baby
I've lost you, baby and you are gone

Forgive and forget it, that's not what I'll ask you to do
'Cause I want you back, you know, you know I want you back
And in concluding my mental displeasure
I found I've lost my prize possession

You are gone away, I keep telling my mind
You're not gonna stay
Yet I believe sometimes that I've lost you, baby
I've lost you, baby and you are gone

You were mine for only a minute and if I hurt you I didn't intend it
You are gone away, I keep telling my mind
You're not gonna stay
Yet I believe sometimes I've lost you, baby
I've lost you, baby and you are gone
