Lyrics

(Source: Am I Not Your Girl?)

How insensitive I must have seemed
When he told me that he loved me.
How unmoved and cold I must have seemed
When he told me so sincerely.
Why, he must have asked,
Did I just turn and stare in icy silence?
What was I to say? What can you say
When a love affair is over?
Now he's gone away,
And I'm alone with the memory of his last look.
Vague and drawn and sad, I see it still.
All his heart-break, in that last look.
Why How , he must have asked,
Did Could I turn and stare in icy silence?
What was I to do? What can one do
When a love affair is over?
Over.

Notes
