I was all right for a while
I could smile for a while
Then I saw you last night
You held my hand so tight
As you stopped to say, "Hello"

You wished me well
You couldn't tell
That I'd been crying over you
Crying over you

Then you said, "So long"
Left me standing all alone
Alone and crying, crying
Crying, crying

It's hard to understand
But the touch of your hand
Can start me crying

I thought that I was over you
But it's true, so so true
I love you even more
Than I did before

But, what, what can I do?
For you don't love me
I'll always be...
I will be crying over you
Crying over you

Yes, now you're gone
And from this moment on
I will be crying, crying
Crying, crying
Yeah, crying, crying
Crying
Crying over you

A WHILE= A moment.

YOU WISHED ME WELL= You told me: I hope everything will be fine with you.
