|Alternative Title||First line of text: You say 'tis the end of love's story|
VERSE 01: You say 'tis the end of love's story,/ You say it's our last "good bye";/ Love dies in the youth of its glory,/ To bear it all now I must try./ Our dream of love is now shattered,/ How strange the story all seems,/ Vows to the winds have been scattered,/ And nothing is left of my dreams.
CHORUS: After all that I've been to you./ After all of these many years,/ After ev'rything I've gone through,/ After all of our joys and our tears,/ It's the old story told again,/ Of a strange love that cannot be true,/ Now we're drifting apart,/ And you're breaking my heart,/ After all that I've been to you.
VERSE 02: 'Tis better we never had met, dear,/ Far better for both, I guess,/ Now why did you ask me to promise,/ And why did I answer you "yes?"/ You do not know how you'll miss me,/ You do not know how I feel,/ I never thought you would leave me,/ And somehow it doesn't seem real.
