WHERE AM I TO GO?
(Bobby Troup / Matt Dennis)
as recorded by Julie London
Where am I to go and what am I to do without you?
The world I knew revolved about you,
Oh where am I to go?
How was I to know the words you spoke were meant for dreamers?
Just words designed for idle schemers,
Oh how was I to know?
I should have known from the start
I'd be riding for a fall again!
But still I lead with my heart
And you were there to count to ten!
Don't think I ever felt so low, the blues have settled deep within me,
I pray that peace of mind will win me!
Time heals everything I know,
But until that time comes, where am I to go,
Where am I to go?
