When you were with me
I was happy (happy-oo-oo)
But you took my happy away
(Away-ay-oo-oo)
You had to go, leave me lonely
(Lonely-oo-oo)
And my lonely just won't go away
(A-away-ay-oo-oo)
I told you, I told you
I'm sorry
My sorry gets bigger each day
With you in my arms
I'd be happy (happy-oo-oo)
But you took my happy away
You must know by now
How I need you (need you-ou-ou)
But you treat my need you so wrong
(So wro-ong-oo-oo)
You must know by now
How I love you (love you-ou-ou)
So don't wait till my love you is gone
Go-o-ne-oo-oo)
I told you, I told you
I'm sorry
My sorry gets bigger each day
With you in my arms
I'd be happy (happy-oo-oo)
But you took my happy away...
