Everybody tells me, I should try to forget you
They tell me why, but don't tell me how
I know they mean well, but it does not help me
I'll work it out by myself somehow
Got to be on my own, it's just something that I must face alone

Chorus:
Please don't sympathise, it really doesn't help
Don't give me your advice, just keep it to yourself
I appreciate your taking time to call
But please don't sympathise, it doesn't help at all

Friends come to see me, but I just can't face them
I feel such a fool, when they see me cry
Since you walked out, I've been so downhearted
It's hard to take, but I know I must try, so

chorus

(Instrumental break)

Got to be on my own, it's just something that I must face alone

chorus repeats out
