Marianne Faithfull Once I Had a Sweetheart Lyrics

Once I had a sweetheart and now I have none
Once I had a sweetheart and now I have none.
He's gone and leave me, he's gone and leave me
He's gone and leave me to sorrow and mourn.

Last night in deep slumber I dreamed I did see
Last night in deep slumber I dreamed I did see
My own true love came smiling to me
My own true love came smiling to me.

And when I awakened I found it not so
And when I awakened I found it not so.
My heart like some fountain with tears overflow
My heart like some fountain with tears overflow.

Once I had a sweetheart and now I have none
Once I had a sweetheart and now I have none.
He's gone and leave me, he's gone and leave me
He's gone and leave me to sorrow and mourn.
