In college, a friend used to sing a rather pretty song, with the refrain:
"Don't pass me by,
All the folks just stand and stare,
They hear my cry.
Oh heart of stone,
Don't pass me by."
I remember one verse that went:
"You say you'd like to know
How much I really love you.
I'd rather try, before I die,
To count the stars, but yet I cry - "
Does anyone know any more of this, or of its history/origins?
