musical score description
VERSE 1My heart’s sad and I am lonely,And I don’t know what to do!Something tells me you’re unhappy,Something says you miss me, too.Ev’ry breeze your name is sighing,Flowers nod their heads in vain;And my soul for you is crying,Won’t you come to me again?REFRAINIf you cared for me as I care for you,If your heart were mine again;If some sweet day to me you’d say,“I love you just the same!”For I want you so, and this much I know,That no other girl will do!I would happy be,If you cared for meAs I care for you!VERSE 2Do you ever see the river?Does the old moon shine as fair?Do you wander in the meadowBuilding castles in the air?Do you ever think of someone?Someone’s heart now filled with pain;Must I live on broken hearted,Say you’ll care for me again!REFRAIN
