🎵 Let's sing along with the lyrics! 🎤


Used to be so easy to give my heart away

But I found out the hard way

There's a price you have to pay

I found out that love was no friend of mine

I should have known time after time

So long, it was so long ago

But I've still got the blues for you

Used to be so easy to fall in love again

But I found out the hard way

It's a road that leads to pain

I found that love was more than just a game

You're playin' to win

But you lose just the same

So long, it was so long ago

But I've still got the blues for you

So many years since I've seen your face

Here in my heart, there's an empty space

Where you used to be

So long, it was so long ago

But I've still got the blues for you

Though the days come and go

There is one thing I know

I've still got the blues for you.
