about

A Mersey-inspired tune with lush orchestration, accordion, and a huge dose of pathos. My alternate title was "Ferry Cross New Jersey," but I thought better of it.

lyrics

Sad-eyed, lonely girl, sad-eyed lonely girl,

He wasn’t good for you;

Sad-eyed, lonely girl, such a sad-eyed lonely girl,

When memories pull you down,

You’re on the next flight out of town.

You can run in desperation,

You can search all over the world,

I will still be waiting,

For the sad-eyed, lonely girl.

Sad-eyed, lonely girl, you’re a sad-eyed lonely girl,

With nothing left to give;

Sad-eyed, lonely girl, such a sad-eyed lonely girl,

What makes your river run?

It isn’t over ‘til it’s done.

You can run in desperation,

You can search all over the world,

I will still be waiting,

For the sad-eyed, lonely girl.

You can run in desperation,

You can search all over the world,

I will still be waiting,

For my sad-eyed, lonely girl.

Sad-eyed, lonely girl,

Sad-eyed, lonely girl,

Sad-eyed, lonely girl.
