Because I Love You - Irving Berlin

Why am I lonely and why am I blue?
And why am I thinking, just thinking of you?
Why should I care if you've broken your vow?
And why do I wonder who's kissing you now?

Because I love you
I've tried so hard but can't forget

Because I love you
You linger in my memory yet

Because I miss you
I often wish we'd never met

And though you left a tear
As a souvenir
It doesn't matter dear
Because I love you

[2nd verse:]
Off with the old love and on with the new
Is easy to say but not easy to do
What does it matter how far we're apart
You're out of my life, dear, but still in my heart
