(ferry/mackay)

Well this is such
A sad affair
Iґve opened up my heart
So many times
But now itґs closed
Oh my dear
Every salted tear
It wrings
Bitter - sweet applause
But when the showґs in full swing
Every once in a while
High stepping chorus lines
Mean iґm forgetting
Mein lullaby - liebchen
How rich in contrast
Love can be
Sometimes iґm 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 schцnste...wiedershen
And now, as you turn to leave
You try to force a smile -
As if to compensate -
Then you break down and cry
