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?
