IRVING BERLIN lyrics - Listening

IRVING BERLIN
"Listening"

[1st verse:]
I'm so lonely, dear
Lonely, waiting here
Waiting for you in the gloaming
While you're far away
I long for the day
When you'll weary of your roaming

[Refrain:]
Listening, listening for you
All alone feeling kind o' blue

Listening
For a knock upon the door
Growing weary waiting for
Your returning, yearning

Missing you more and more each day
Wanting you more than I can say

Because there is nothing else to do
Just a lonely thing
Listening for you

[2nd verse:]
How I long for you
When the day is through
And the shades of night are falling
How I miss you dear
For I want you near
And I seem to hear you calling
