Fairport Convention sing I Still Miss Someone

At my door the leaves are falling
A cold wild wind will come
Sweethearts walk by together
And I still miss someone

Chorus (repeated after each verse):
Oh, no I never got over those blues eyes
I see them everywhere
I miss those arms that held me
When all the love was there

I wonder if she’s sorry
For leavin’ what we’d begun
There’s someone for me somewhere
And I still miss someone
