Its all lost, ship is sunk
Regret for each love ballad, each desire expressed
O! to be free of this burden called life
Life that binds, Life that gags, Life that frees
Perpetually on repeat.
To stay is to grief, otherwise is agony
Hope lies in staying and so does pain
My lament I raise to the skies
For there it seems my kind dwell
My lament is on a cold bed
Only the wall breaks my rolling.
Tis an unbecoming end
To a feeling so pure, so sure
You would my hands hold
You would the world chase
Surely I am but mortal, human
Tis only so much my heart can bear
Maybe the short one, or the shorter one after
But those tall ones!
How they got you in a tease
Got you slapping me around
Broke my hip not to lose theirs
Yet the light-skinned one won you to her house
