“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness,
but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.
They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love.”

- Washington Irving

(Since You've) Gone

Recorded by Ferlin Husky, 1957
(03 Dec 1925 - 17 Mar 2011)


Since you've gone, the moon, the sun, the stars in the sky know the reason why I cry
Love divine once was mine; now you've gone
Since you've gone, my heart, my lips, my tear dimmed eyes, a lonely soul within me cries
I acted smart, broke your heart, now you've gone
Oh, what I'd give for the lifetime I've wasted
The love that I've tasted; I was wrong; now you've gone

Oh what I'd give for the lifetime...
