I wonder what is keeping my true love this night
I wonder what is keeping him out of my sight
I wonder if he knows of the pain i endure
And stays from me, this night im not sure
Oh love are you calling your cause to advance
Or yet are you waiting for a far far better chance
I am coming forth to tell you i've a new love in store
I am coming forth to tell you, i love you no more.
For i can love lightly, and i can love strong
I can love the old love, till the new love comes on
I only said i loved you for to give your heart ease
Oh when im not with you, ill love whom i please
Oh theres gold in my pocket and a pain in my heart.
I cant love a man with to many sweat hearts
You're my first and only false love, but its lately i knew that
the stronger i loved you, the falser it grew.
