Blue Darling
Dennis Marsh Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I was a fool, broke every rule, blue darling
Saw the tears that took the place of your sweet smile
My heart would break if ever I should lose you
Blue darling you're the lone and only one
So please, please, please forgive me
Im sorry for the wrong that I have done
My heart would break if ever I should lose you
Blue darling, you're the lone and only one

I'll be leaving on account of you
So please don't ever think of me
We used to love together, we two
So please don't ever think of me
Won't someone be kind and make you happy all the time
Your love for me has faded away
Although my heart is aching dear
Be happy and never think of me

So please, please forgive me
I'm sorry for the wrong that I have done
My heart would break if ever I should lose you
Blue darling you're the lone and only one
Blue darling you're the lone and only one.
