lyrics

My love and I are parted,
By fate’s relentless rigor,
Which hounded out joy with cruel vigor!
And I lie broken hearted,
Condemned to weep and grieve all alone?
Through grief all too real,
My heart will be leal;
True to the love I once have known!
But you? Yes you?
Will you remember and be forever true?
Or will you seek somebody new?
But no! How could I wrong you so?
Blame not my heart, but blame my woe.
For though you go,
That you were crushed by fortune’s blow
Your tears will show by ceaseless flow.

Two hearts once bound by deep affection,
In spite of all that fate has done,
Will always beat as one!
We mock at grief,
We scorn dejection;
The blows of fate we can despise,
For none can loose or break the ties
Which holds us fast and exorcise
The evil power that tries
To change love’s happy tender sighs
To sorrow’s woeful cries!
Let lovers trust in love’s protection,
Then let them dry their weeping eyes;
And love shall be their prize.
