Gloria is but a kiss in the night
One brief caress
Gloria is like a star in it's flight
You can't possess

Warm, so warm and tender
Forever hoping
And groping for love

So free to surrender
When she awakes
All she holds is a shadow

But Gloria is like
The taste of champagne
Sparkling and gay
Dancing to some exciting refrain
Dancing until the piper is paid

Gloria, born to be
Loved and betrayed

Oh, Gloria, born to be
Loved and betrayed
