1st Verse: 
"All those things I ever thought would never end, 
To think they're now all memories sends me 'round the bend, 
To watch her airplane swaying, coming in to land, 
There my world is hanging in someone else's hands, 
And if I have done something, and you have to let me go, 
Think of me as someone, someone that you know"

2nd Verse: 
"I wasn't daring, not much a chancer, 
Oh, my darling, why won't you answer?

2nd riff/lead: 
The 1st time through there's a lengthy
