When Your Lover Has Gone
by Frank Sinatra

What good is the scheming, the planning and dreaming
That comes with each new love affair
The love that you cherish, so often may perish
And leave you with castles in air

When you're alone, who cares for starlit skies
When you're alone, the magic moonlight dies
At break of dawn, there is no sunrise
When your lover has gone

What lonely hours, the evening shadows bring
What lonely hours, with memories lingering
Like faded flowers, life can't mean anything
When your lover has gone

When Sinatra recorded this, his marriage to Ava Gardner was already on the rocks. In later years, he referred to this album as "His Ava album". He poured his heart and soul into these tracks, and it shows- this was the first time he had recorded material with such gravitas, sung with such deep sincerity, and the oft-repeated story goes that at the end of the master take for this song he broke down and cried, it was all too much for him. And listening to this, I can well believe it.

Thank you for sharing the history...what is the name of the album??


i'm still not born and I listen to this


I'm already deaf and I'm still listening to this


I'm unborn and I cant listen to this

Scott Kuzminski

These "torch songs" were what Sinatra sounded best at. Sad, brooding, break-up songs and such. His voice, persona, and personality fit hand-in-glove with this style. Add Nelson Riddle-esque arrangements, and you are floating on a cloud of perfection, with a bit of a clouded buzz from your shot and a beer, but not too much....

Matheus Bezerra de Lima

Scott Kuzminski Never did his voice sound as beautiful and rich as in this album also!
