In the lonely night I wake up to find
someone else's boy always on my mind
But he doesn't know how much I really love him so.
Though it isn't right when I dream like this
I long to hold him tight and to taste his kiss
And then I wake to find he's someone else's boy, not mine.
Whenever I see them together,
it breaks my poor heart in two
I know that I should forget him,
'cause he's her guy, but what can I do?
How I hope and pray to the Lord above
to send me down a boy, one that I can love,
who'll be mine alone, and not someone else's boy.
