Head Over Heels lyrics

I think I'll go across the ocean,

If I don't change my notion,

I've just got to forget you if I can.


I'm feelin so blue,

I don't know what to do,

Because I'm head over heels in love with you.

Every day is sad and lonely,

For I'm thinkin of you only ,

I just can't sleep when I lay down.

Oh I'd like to be forgiven,

But this life ain't worth livin,

If have to sit and worry over you.

Oh the nights are long and dreary,

All I do is sit and worry,

I just can't bear the thought of losin you.
