Nothing is perfect
Or, no tale that I’ll tell
I’ll be your sorrow
For nothing ends well
In this life of mine
Life’s leaves, they pine
Oh for a match for my node
To sing love’s sweet ode

He always looks first
Before holding the door
Lets it slam on the lowly
They should hold him in awe
In this life of mine
She loves this swine
Oh on her heartstring, bowed
A song for this toad

Joy is my heart
One hour
The beautiful world
One flower
A washed out grey
And a washed out day
And some fine people say
It’s all good

Man was born not
To be airy and glad
Made to survive,
And create from the sad
In this life of mine
A segment of a line
Oh do not slip, gentle kiss
Into the night of the abyss
