How Insensitive

By A. Jobim, R. Gilbert, & V. DeMoraes

How insensitive I must have seemed
When he told me that he loved me
How unmoved and cold I must have seemed
When he told me so sincerely

Why he must have asked
Did I just turn and stare in icy silence
What was I to say? What can you say
When a love affair is over?

Now he’s gone away and I’m alone
With a memory of his last look
Vague and drawn and sad, I see it still
All the heartbreak in that last look

Why he must have asked
Did I just turn and stare in icy silence
What was I to say? What can you say
When a love affair is over?
