Then you break down and cry

Well this is such
A sad affair
I’ve opened up my heart
So many times
But now it’s closed

Oh my dear
Every salted tear it wrings
Bitter – sweet … applause

But when the show’s in full swing
Every once in a while
High stepping chorus lines
Mean I’m forgetting
Mein lullaby – liebchen

How rich …
In contrast love can be
Sometimes I’m quite amused
To see it twist and turn
To taste both sweet and dry

These vintage years
Lovers you consume, my friend
As others their wine
Nein – das ist nicht
Das ende der welt
Gestrandet an leben und kunst
Und das spiel geht weiter
Wie man weiss
Noch viele schonste
Wiedershen

And now, as you turn to leave
You try to force a smile
As if to compensate

Then you break down and cry
