Today, I happened to hear our song again
Listening to it brought tears to my eyes
A feeling of sadness for what might have been
My mind knows what my grieving heart denies

It was playing on the jukebox the day we met
We joked later that our stars were crossed
Totally head over heels from that moment on
Teens determined to be together at all cost

My memory feels your strong arms around me
And how I stood on my tiptoes to kiss you
Playing through my mind as on a movie screen
Only God knows how much I still miss you

Feeling bitter and cheated when you had to go
As if some terrible prank had been played
No answers came and I had to keep trudging on
Without the one who always brightened my day

Though I know you're forever gone from me
My lonely heart tries to relive those days
And the many times we danced and listened
To Buddy Holly singing True Love Ways
