Shirley Bassey w Tony Osborne & his Orch
rec Feb 4th 1964
Gone has my lover,
No familiar step upon the stair.
Now I'm alone
With my memories and his empty chair.
Gone like the wild wind,
Gone to keep some secret rendezvous!
Has he gone for ever
To the arms of someone new?
They tell me I just cry to forget him,
For he can only fill my heart with pain.
There are times I wish I'd never met him,
But I love him and I want him back again!
I know I'm a fool,
I need a rock to build my dreams upon!
But what can I do?
For without him I can't go on!
In my life there's an empty space
That no-one else can replace,
So how can I face the world
Now he's gone?
