8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Two of a kind ev'ry where I see, Lovers in the moonlight, Robins in a tree.
Now that we have parted, What am I to do, But make this plea to you:
Have you ever been lonely? Have you ever been blue?
Have you ever loved someone, Just as I love you?
Can't you see that I'm sorry, For each mistake I've made?
Can't you see I've changed dear? Can't you see that I've paid?
Oh, be a little forgiving, Take me back in your heart.
How can I go on living, Now that we're apart?
If you knew what I'd been through, You'd know why I ask you:
Have you ever been lonely? Have you ever been blue?
