Lost love,
Where can you be?
Lost love,
Come back to me.
Lost love,
Guess I atone,
Lost love,
I'm so alone.

I know,
That I've been wrong,
I've known
It all along,
And so
A fool is wise,
I've grown
To realize:

Old love is true love,
Safer than new love,
New love is subject to change;
I'm paying now, dear,
For each broken vow, how strange.
How strange.

Lost love,
I've been so blue;
Lost love,
The sun won't shine;
The day I find
My love,
Lost love divine.
