After You've Gone

Nina Simone

Now listen honey while I say
How can you fix your mind to say you're going away

Don't say that we must part
Don't break my aching heart
You know you love me
True for many years
Love me night and day
Can't you see my tears?
How can you leave me?
Listen while I say

After you've gone and left me crying
After you've gone there's no denying
You'll feel blue, you'll feel sad
You'll miss the greatest mama that you ever ever ever had
There'll come a time, don't you forget it
There'll come a time when you'll regret it

Some day when you grow lonely
Your heart will break like mine and you'll want me only
After you've gone, after you've gone away

After you've gone and left me crying
After you've gone there's no denying
You'll feel blue, you'll feel sad
You'll miss the greatest pal you ever had
There'll come a time, don't you forget it
There'll come a time when you'll regret it

Some day when you grow lonely
Your heart will break like mine and you'll want me only
After you've gone, after you've gone away
Oh, yeah
After you've gone, after you've gone away
