​An Empty Cup (And a Broken Date)

This song is by Buddy Holly and appears on the compilation album The Complete Buddy Holly (1979).

One lonely night at this drive-in
And now I know what a fool I've been
She was to meet me, we had a date
A date at seven
I dreamed of heaven
Now it's way past eight
She just drove by with another guy
No wonder I can't help but cry

To think she never cared just tears me up
Now, all I have to show for love
Is this empty cup
Just like this Coke
My love is gone
I've hit the bottom
Now I'm all alone
