I'll Be True To You
- 114 Views
They met upon a blue moon And they parted on a cloudy day They were so in love and out of school But he was goin' so far, far away She said: "I'll be true to you Even though you don't want me to And I'll be blue for you Even though you've asked me not to" Well the year's drifted by them, as we all know they can He found other women, but she refused other men But as fate would have it, they met again She was on a down-hill slide, and he was just slidin' in As he looked into her eyes that night, he never realized The only real love in his life was passin' by When he turned and left her there, his words, "Goodbye" He heard her calling out to him, and as he walked, she cried "I've been true to you Seems like speakin' to me is the least that you could do And I've been blue for you Even though you've asked me not to" She'd been drinkin way too hard one night She'd been drinkin way too long Alone and pale in a cheap hotel, she died there in the dawn Kneelin' by her grave, oh so late and oh so wrong He longed to hold her close again, cryin' on and on He cried, "I'll be true to you After all that I have put you through And I'll be blue for you Though you never even asked me to"
