Once in every long and lonely while
You will wonder why you were beguiled by her.
She with all her little charms
Is safe in someone else’s arms,
So why is it she still alarms your heart?
Where are all the dreams that once you shared?
Tell yourself you never really cared for her.
Fool yourself as time goes by,
But then when you believe the lie,
Oh why should you be haunted by her smile,
Just once in every long and lonely while?
