Last night I cried upon my pillow, filled with deep regret My mistake was (...?) Now I find I can't forget. My days were filled with sadness I found I had to leave Now all I do is sit alone on my own* and grief. (Chorus:) Oh baby, I love you till the end of my life My dreams are haunted by my children, my wife And if baby, I love you, it hurts every day I know I've lost you, there's no more to say. Sometimes I sit and think about the quarrels we have had For ourselves it did not matter For the children it was bad. I can still hear them crying, as we argued all the night, those little eyes all wet with tear and so full of fright. Chorus Take good care of the children Tell them daddy's gone away, but he'll always send them love until his dying day. And you, my dear, I wish you luck, in the years that lie ahead Kiss my dear-ones good-night for me, when you take them to bed. Chorus
