Perry Como - "How Insensitive (Insensatez)" lyrics

How insensitive . . . I must have seemed
when she told me that she loved me . . .
how unmoved an' cold . . . I must have seemed
when she told me so sincerely . . .

Why . . . she must have asked
do I just turn an' stare in icy silence'
What was I to say . . .
what can you say when a love affair is over'

Now, she's gone away
and I'm alone with a memory of her last look . . .
vague an' drawn an' sad . . . I see it still
all her heartbreak in that last look . . .

How . . . she must have asked
could I just turn an' stare in icy silence'
What was I to do . . .
what can one do when a love affair is over'

What can you do
when a love affair is over'

It's over . . .
