Since I Fell for You
Written byBuddy Johnson, 1945
When you just give love, and never get love,
you'd better let love depart.
I know it's so, and yet I know,
I can't get you out of my heart.
You made me leave my happy home.
You took my love, and now you've gone,
since I fell for you ...
Love brings such misery and pain.
I guess I'll never be the same,
since I fell for you ...
Well it's too bad, and it's too sad,
but I'm in love with you ...
You love me, then you snub me.
But what can I do, I'm still in love with you.
Well, I guess I'll never see the light.
I get the blues most every night,
since I fell for you ...
Since I fell for you.
