Maybe the lateness of the hour

Makes me seem bluer than I am

But in my heart there is a shower,

I hope she'll be happier with him.

Maybe the darkness of the hour

Makes me seem lonelier than I am,

But over the darkness I have no power,

Hope she'll be happier with him.

I can't believe that she don't want to see me,

We lived and loved with each other so long.

I never thought that she really would leave me,

But she's gone.

Maybe the lateness of the hour

Makes me seem bluer than I am,

But in my heart there is a shower,

Hope she'll be happier with him.
