Original Roy Orbison version

Your baby doesn't love you any more

Golden days before they end
Whisper secrets to the wind
Your baby won't be near you anymore

Tender nights before they fly
Send falling stars that seem to cry
Your baby doesn't want you anymore
It's over

It breaks your heart in two to know she's been untrue
But oh what will you do when she says to you
There's someone new, we're through, we're through, we're through
It's over, it's over, it's over

All the rainbows in the sky
Start to weep then say goodbye
You won't be seeing rainbows anymore

Setting suns before they fall
Echo to you that's all, that's all
But you'll see lonely sunset after all
It's over, it's over, it's over, it's over
