 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

They say into your early life romance came
And in this heart of yours burned a flame
A flame that flickered one day and died away

You learned that fools in love soon grow wise
The years have changed you, somehow

Is that all you really want?
No, sophisticated lady
I know, you miss the love you lost long ago
And when nobody is nigh you cry
