Billy Gilman – The One You Left Behind lyrics

Tried to reach you
With a love song
To let you know you're on my mind
I made a record
It made me famous
Called the one you left behind

Fame and fortune
May have found me
Oh, but fate can be so unkind
Because of you
They come to see me
They love the one you left behind

Chorus
Ten thousand people know the words are true
They cry for me
As I cry for you
But when the curtain falls
And the show is through
I'm still cryin' for you

When it's over
And I'm forgotten
They'll still be playin' this song of mine
And you may wonder
Whatever happened
To the one you left behind

Chorus
Ten thousand people know the words are true
They cry for me
As I cry for you
But when the curtain falls
And the show is through
I'm still cryin' for you

When it's over
And I'm forgotten
They'll still be playin' this song of mine
And you may wonder
Whatever happened
To the one you left behind

Yes, you may wonder
Whatever happened
To the one you left behind
Mmm hmmm
