My love, if I write a song for you
To that extent you are gone
For, as everyone says, and I know it’s true:
We are all always alone.
Never so separate trying to be two
And the busy old fool is right.
To try and finger myself from you
Distinguishes day from night.
If I say “I love you” we can’t but laugh
Since irony knows what we’ll say.
If I try to free myself by my craft
You vary as night from day.
So, accept the wish for the deed my dear.
Words were made to prevent us near.
