How could it have happened?
What was I thinking of?
To break a heart that loved me-
Why did we fall in love?

I guess I should have known, dear
Our love could never be…
I haven’t words to tell you,
Just what you mean to me.

“I love you”, came so easily-
Somehow it seemed so right.
As I held you in my arms, girl.
That warm, and pleasant night.

Not knowing with the dawning-
That I would drive away…
Your hand would wave a sad good-bye,
Your heart would cry, “Please, stay”!

I’ve thought of you so often-
I know you think of me.
While we are tossed about in life-
Like ships upon the sea.

It seems our lot in life was meet-
Then vanish out of sight…
Like ships which meet, and quickly pass-
Out on the sea at night.
