The music for this song was written by Guiseppe Verdi in 1853; Herman Wasserman and Leroy Holmes adapted it in 1951. The song has been recorded by Nina Simone as well as Tony Bennett.


Oh I’m lonely and left with tears and sorrow
I can’t face tomorrow since my love has gone
She’s left me, left me for another and my heart went with her
How can I go on

Was our love a game played for a day
Were you pretending two hearts gone astray
Am I to blame for this unhappy ending

Nothing else is left me but a memory
Beloved how I long to hold you in my arms enfold you
Live again our happiness but now I must face tomorrow alone
Since my love has gone
