The stars have lost their glitter.
The wind grows colder and suddenly you're older.
And all because of the man that got away.
No more his eager call.
Oh the writing's on the wall.
Dreams have all gone astray.
The man that won you
Has gone off and undone you.
That great beginning
Has seen its final inning.
Don't know what happened.
It's all a crazy game.
No more, no more that old time thrill.
Oh honey, you've been through the mill.
And never a new love will be the same.
Good riddance, oh good bye.
Every trick of his you're on to.
But fools will be fools and where's he gone to?
The road gets rougher.
It's lonelier and it's tougher
With hope you burn up
Tomorrow, tomorrow he may turn up.
There's just no let up
The live long night at day.
Ever since this world began
There ain't nothing sadder than
A one-man woman pining for the man that got away.
