Sadness so deep and grey that nothing can penetrate it. Neither herb nor drink can chase it away; neither love nor laughter can hold it at bay.
What am I that my heart should be so torn; what did I do to deserve to be so forlorn?
The tears gather in my eyes but I cannot let them fall – what would that bring me since I have no one at all?
I sing I dance I love – but to what end when i cannot reach above?
My head is heavy and my heart is weighed down; what is there in this world for me but a frown?
Where do they come from, these tears that I cannot shed? No more – I am getting lost i my head.
