You Left Me A Long Long Time Ago Lyrics

by Kris Kristofferson

You tell me today that you're leaving
But just think a while, I'm sure that you must know
Today might be the day that you walk away
But you left me a long, long time ago

Today is just the day that ends it all
Except the usual memories that always linger on
And today might be the day that you walk away
But you left me a long, long time ago

I stood with helpless hands and watched me lose your love
A little more each day, then it was gone
I kept wonderin' just how long until this day would come
How long could your pride keep hangin' on

So please don't say you're sorry, don't say anything
Don't try to say why you must leave, just go
And today might be the day that you walk away
But you left me a long, long time ago
You left me a long, long time ago
