IT TAKES TOO LONG TO LEARN TO LIVE ALONE (R.I. Allen / Leon Carr) Peggy Lee - 1972 Alice Clark - 1972 Mel Tormé - 1974 Eydie Gorme - 1976 Also recorded by: Anna Fegi I leave the house, I catch the bus And go to work the way I did before The same routine most everyday Except I guess I see my folks much more A year has passed, I thought by now That I could make a new life of my own But habits are so hard to break I think of you and I still ache It takes too long to learn to live alone It's really bad when Friday comes Because I know the weekend lies ahead The walks we took, the football games And when it rained, how late we stayed in bed I've done so much to change the house The attic's full of memories I've known And yet when I turn out the light I wait for you to say 'goodnight' It takes too long to learn to live alone I go on dates, but when I do I always find before the night is through The same old thing behind my smile I'm sitting there comparing him to you And in the end it's always you I feel it even more when I get home I thought that I was free of you But I was wrong, I never knew It takes too long to learn to live alone And in the end it's always you I feel it even more when I get home I thought that I was free of you Oh, but I was wrong, I never knew It takes too long to learn to live alone I'm alone (Transcribed from the Eydie Gorme recording by Mel Priddle - October 2008)
