When I watch you sadly calling, when all you can say is "no"
Let my name be sorrow, let my name be sorrow
When I long to see you smiling, when your fear just won't let go
Let my name be sorrow, let my name be sorrow

Once we had laughs as big as lives, we had lies as sweet as you
Till one morning for us two, all was over

When the dawn is softly showing, darkness lingers on your brow
Let my name be sorrow, let my name be sorrow
When the roses sweetly growing, lose their petals one by one
Let my name be sorrow, let my name be sorrow

Once we had laughs as big as lives, we had lies as sweet as you
Till one morning for us two, all was over

You don't have to say "I love you" when your heart is far behind
Just let my name be sorrow, let my name be sorrow.
