Where have all my friends gone? (Where have all my friends gone?)
They've all disappeared, (They've all disappeared,)
Turned around maybe one day. (Turned around maybe one day.)
You're all that was there. (You're all that was there.)

Stood by unbelieving, (Stood by unbelieving,)
Stood by on my own. (Stood by on my own.)
Always thought I was someone; (Always thought I was someone;)
Turned out I was wrong. (Turned out I was wrong.)

But you brought me through, (But you brought me through,)
And you made me feel (And you made me feel)

So blue! (So)
(Blue!)
Why don't you (Why don't you)
Stay behind? (stay behind?)
So blue! (So)
(Blue!)
Why don't you stop (Why don't you stop?)
And look at what's goin' down?

Live by an old woman: (Live by an old woman:)
She'd never sell me a lie. (She'd never sell me a lie.)
It's hard to sing with someone (It's hard to sing with someone)
Who won't sing with you. (Who won't sing with you.)

Give all of my mercy, (Give all of my mercy,)
Give all of my heart, (Give all of my heart,)
Never thought that I'd miss you -- (Never thought that I'd miss you --)
That I'd miss you so much. (That I'd miss you so much.)

You brought me through, (You...)
And you made me feel (You...)

So blue! (So)
(Blue!)
Why don't you (Why don't you)
Stay behind? (stay behind?)
So blue! (So)
(Blue!)
Why don't you stop (Why don't you stop?)
And look at what's goin' down?

All my life, I've (Stand by,)
Waited for (Stand by,)
Someone I could (Waiting)
Show the door; (around,)
But nothing seems to change. (Now that I'm blue --)
You've come back into my arms (That I'm blue from now on.)

So blue! (So blue!)
(Blue!)
Why don't you (Why don't you)
Stay behind? (stay behind?)
So blue! (So blue!)
(Blue!)
Why don't you, (Why don't you,)
Why don't you stay behind? (why don't you stay behind?)
So blue! (So blue!)
(Blue!)
Why don't you (Why don't you)
Stay behind? (stay behind?)
So blue! (So blue!)
(Blue!)
Why don't you stop (Why don't you stop?)
And look at what's goin' down?
