And all I needed was you… When you go please know, my heart’s in ruin again. When you go my heart’s in ruin again.

And underneath your windows where Your bed sheets were my stairs, I climbed up quietly So your daddy wouldn’t hear. I loved you madly I wish I could take it back. And all I needed was you… When you go please know, my heart’s in ruins again. When you go please know my heart’s in ruins again. When you go please know my heart’s in ruins again, Please know. I tried to find the joy in being out of love, I’m Still trying. I tried to find the joy in being out of love, I’m Still trying, I’m still trying. When you go please know, my heart’s in ruins again. When you go please know my heart’s in ruins again.
