A nocturne for the blues played on a broken heart string
It's wailing out the news my baby is gone from me.

Dark shadows in the rain, a telephone that won't ring
Just memories remain of lovers that used to be.
I miss the laughs and the fun, my spot in the sun
When I was the one one and only.
The music and lights, those wonderful nights
The morning is the time we'd kiss.
The laughs and the fun, my days in the sun,
They're over and done, and I'm lonely;

Don't ask me to hide the heartbreak inside
The gleaming spark is gone, the light went dark.

This nocturn for the blues took all and left me nothing
Nothing but the blues 'til baby comes back to me.
