And in this heart of yours burned a flame,
A flame that flickered one day and died away
Then, with disillusion deep in your eyes,
You learned that fools in love soon grow wise
The years have changed you somehow;
I see you now
Smoking, drinking, never thinking of tomorrow, nonchalant;
Diamonds shining, dancing, dining with some man in a restaurant;
Is that all you really want?
No, sophisticated lady, I know
You miss the love you lost long ago,
And when nobody is nigh, you cry...
