I SAW THE END OF THE WORLD

I saw the end of the world
When my baby went away
I wanted her to be my girl
But, she left me today

I saw the end of the world
When she said goodbye to me
She gave me back the ring of pearl
But, tears in her eyes i could see

Though she gave me back the ring
I know she didn't mean to hurt me
For I know all about this thing
That has tried to set me free

I saw the end of the world
As she walked on down the street
And as her scarf she unfurled
I wondered if again we would meet
