• Pour out your heart, my dear
    I haven’t time to care
    My watch is now tick-
    ing past the moments
    You sit crying, over there

    Crumpled in the corner
    Like a puppet with no strings
    I told you, my darling,
    what he was like
    And this is what he brings

    Don’t wipe the tears so roughly
    Your face is streaked and pale
    I don’t think you have
    enough time to grieve
    A love so sick and frail

    I know when you’re in love
    The world seems so bright and sunny
    And I have told you
    once before of how
    It’s anything but lovely.

    But you will never listen
    Though your heart keeps crashing down
    Under weighty hopes
    and expectations
    Til your feet once more touch the ground.
