Sweet, sweet bitter love
The taste still lingers
Go through my helpless fingers
You slipped away

Sweet, sweet bitter love
What joy you brought me
And what pain you taught me
I'm so sure I'll stay

And my magic dreams
Have lost their spell
Where there was hope
There's just an empty shell

Sweet, sweet bitter love
Why have you awakened
And then forsakened
A trusting heart like mine?

My magic dreams
Have lost their spell
And where there was hope
There's just an empty shell

Sweet, sweet bitter love
What joy, what joy you brought me
And what pain you taught me
I'm so sure to stay

Sweet bitter love
Why, why have you awakened
And then forsakened
A trusting heart, a trusting heart like mine?
