I'll hold my head up high, looking to the sky,
So they won't see all the tears that are in my eyes.
No one will know, I'm going through,
My first lonely night without you.
I know the night will hide sadness I feel inside.
No one will know what a smile on my lips won't tell them.
I'm losing you, And going through,
My first lonely night without you.
As I walk along, the lonely winds seem to say,
"From this darkness on all your nights will be this way."
Last Refrain:
So I'll go on alone, pretending you're not gone,
But I can't hide all the moments of love we knew.
Memories of you, As I go through,
My first lonely night without you.
