The grass keeps right on growin'
the sun goes right on shinin'
there are apples on the apple tree
ain't life a funny thing, flowers bloom an' birds still sing an'
everything's the same except for me . . .

Everything's the same except for me . . .
because, you're gone . . .
I tell myself you're really gone
How can it be, but there it is,
I'm alone once again . . .

An' life goes on
without your smile I knew so well
the secrets that we used to tell
yesterday way back when?

And . . . the grass keeps right on growin'
the sun goes right on shinin'
the skies are blue the way they used to be
ain't life a funny thing, kids play tag an' church bells ring an'
everything's the same except for me . . .

Everything's the same except for me . . .
'cause, you're not there . . .
I look for you but you're not there
I hear your voice , it's just a trick
that my mind wants to play . . .
How can this world keep turnin' like it used to do?
There's no more world, there's no more you,
no more words left to say . . .

And . . . the grass keeps right on growin'
the sun goes right on shinin'
there are apples on the apple tree
ain't life a funny thing, flowers bloom an' birds that sing an'
everything the same except for me . . .

. . . everything's the same except for me . . .
