Lyrics:
 

Why must I love a heartless one
Who'll never knows the harm she's done
Though love is blind I should have known
Just call me lonesome from now on

I climb the stairs up to my room
But no-one meets me in my gloom
The silence tells me she is gone
Just call me lonesome from now on

These walls will hide me when I cry
I hope that heaven lets me die
What good is life when hope is gone
Just call me lonesome from now on

Just call me lonesome from now on
