We love each other so deeply
That I ask you this, sweetheart
Why should we quarrel ever?
Why can't we be enough clever? Never to part

Ev'ry time we say goodbye
I die a little
Ev'ry time we say goodbye
I wonder why a little

Why the gods above me?
Who must be in the know?
Think so little of me
They allow you to go

When you're near
There's such an air
Of spring about it
I can hear a lark somewhere

Begin to sing about it
There's no love song finer
But how strange the change
From major to minor

Ev'ry time we say goodbye
Ev'ry time we say goodbye
