Lyrics



Well, there is nothing I can do

If you leave me here to cry

Said, there is nothing I can do

If you leave me here to cry

You know my love will follow you babe

As the years go passing by


Well, I gave you all I own babe

That is one thing you can't deny

Yes I said I gave you most than everything I own babe

Babe, that is one thing you can't deny

You know my love will follow you

As the years go passing by


I am gonna leave it up to you

Baby, so long, so long, goodbye

Said, I am gonna leave it upto you babe

Oh, long, Honey, so long, so long, goodbye

You know my love will follow you

As the years go passing by


As the years go passing by

As the years go passing by
