Although you love her
Forget the woman
She doesn’t care

Although you need her
And want her near you
She’s never there

When you are lonely
You think if only
She would appear and love you
Your life would be sublime
But don’t you know you’re just waiting time

Dreams and remembering, hoping and longing
For her return
Are all in vain now, isn’t it plain now
When will you learn

She’ll never love you
Try to forget her, try to find someone new
When when will you forget the woman
Forget the woman
She has forgotten you
