It Takes Too Long to Learn to Live Alone [#][*]
by Eydie Gorme



I leave the house
I catch the bus and go to work
The way I did before
The same routine
Most everyday except I guess
I've seen my folks once more

A year has passed
I thought by now
That I could make a new life of my own
But I have tried so hard to break
I think of you and I still ache
It takes too long to learn to live alone

It's really bad,
When Friday comes because I know
The weekend lies ahead
The walks we took the football games
And when it rained I lately stayed in pain.

I've done so much to change the house
The attics full of memories I've known
And yet when I turned off the light
I wait for you to say goodnight
It takes too long to learn to live alone.

I go on dates,
But when I do I always find
Before the night is through
The same old thing
Behind my smile I'm sitting there
Comparing him to you

Chorus:
And in the end, it's always you
I feel it even more when I get home
I thought that I was free of you
But I was wrong
I never knew, it takes too long
To learn to live alone

And in the end, it's always you
I feel it even more when I get home
I Thought that I was free of you
Oh, but I was wrong
I never knew, it takes too long
To learn to live alone.

I'm alone.
