​The World You Left Behind

This song is by Jim Reeves and appears on the album Good 'N' Country (1963).

I try to sleep to kill the pain
When I wake it's still the same
'Cause I'm living in
This world you left behind.

Just like a broken piece of glass
You have swept me aside to pass
Leaving shattered dreams
With a lonely heart and mind.

Well, here I go again
(Here I go again)
It's just like yesterday
(Just like yesterday
The pain is deep within
My heart to stay.

I'm just a fool to sit and cry
Wasting years before I die
In this lonely world
This world you left behind.

It's just like yesterday
(Just like yesterday)
The pain is deep within
My heart to stay.

I'm just a fool to sit and cry
Wasting years before I die
In this lonely world
This world you left behind...
