(from the CD Classic Collection: 30 songs)
Love me or leave me and let me be lonely,
You won’t believe me that I love you only,
I’d rather be lonely than happy with somebody else.
You might find the night time the right time for kissing,
But night time is my time for just reminiscing,
Regretting instead of forgetting with somebody else.
There’ll be no else unless that someone is you, you, you.
I intend to be independently blue.
I want your love, but I don’t want to borrow,
I have it today and give back tomorrow,
For my love is your love, but there’s no love for nobody else.
