How wrapped I am, oh no one knows
The highest cloud's under my nose
Oh here I am, she's here as well
What princes buy is what I sell
Don't let thy lips fall into sleep
I read thy eyes so well, so deep
Let thy mind rest so in that peace
And thy heart beat without a cease
Have you ever known love's prowess?
That makes you weak-kneed and powerless
It'll force to do things you won't do
To believe the sky black is true
Would my life be just a second?
Would it go now ere it's reckoned?
What a thing is life worth living?
Once a trouble goes, ten are coming
Am I the tear that once it's shed consumed?
Upon your cheek my death is doomed?
Or a candle to light your darkness and be burnt?
And then your face from me is turned?
