Original RCA Recording




< Instrumental opening >
Hopelessly, I long for you
With a heart that’s breakin' in two
I love you so
Even though, I don’t stand a chance!
Hopelessly, I dream of you
Though I know, they’ll never come true
I’m alone, so alone
With my last romance
There’s one thing in this world that only…
Broken hearts can learn
There’s nothing in this world so lonely,
As lovin' and not being loved in return
Carelessly, you played a part
Foolin’ me right from the start
Leavin’ me, just to be
Hopelessly in love!
< Instrumental Break >
Carelessly you played a part
Foolin’ me right from the start
Leavin’ me, just to be,
Hopelessly in love…
Hopelessly in love!
