Johnny Mathis – Love Look Away lyrics

Words by Oscar Hammerstein and Music by Richard Rodgers

This song was apparently never charted as a single in the Top 100 by anyone
Sung in the Broadway musical "Flower Drum Song" by Arabella Hong

I have wished before
I shall wish no more

Love, look away
Love, look away from me
Fly when you pass my door
Fly and get lost at sea

Call it a day
Love, let us say we're through
No good are you for me
No good am I for you

Wanting you so I try too much
After you go I cry too much

Love, look away
Lonely though I may be
Leave me and set me free
Look away, look away, look away from me

Look away, look away, look away from me
