Henrik Norbeck's Song Lyrics

Once I Loved

Go and Leave Me
Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

Once I loved with fond affection,
One whose thoughts were dear to me.
Until there came the weary parting,
Never more he will speak to me.

Go and leave me if you wish to,
Never let me cross your mind.
If you think I've proved unworthy,
Go and leave me, I don't mind.

Many's the night as you lay sleeping,
Dreaming in some sweet repose,
While I, a young girl, lay brokenhearted,
Listening to the wind that blows.


Here is the ring that first you gave me,
When our hearts they were entwined.
Give it to the dark haired lady,
She'll never know that it once was mine.
