One day follows another
Reluctantly surrenders as I sigh.
One by one, each day passes
Since my lover said goodbye.

Day by day the teardrops fall
In a never ending stream.
One day after another
I relinquish all my hope - filled dreams.

Time moves on so slowly.
Nothing seems to make me smile.
I know I must get past the heartache,
Must keep my chin up all the while.

Day follows day, one by one they're gone.
I often feel I'll not survive.
For all the pain that I have suffered
Brings the teardrops to my eyes.

One day follows another
Time will make me whole they say.
Time will dry my glistening teardrops
And I'll forget you, come that day!
