Oh dear !
Can our hearts the agonies smear ?
Let's be candid,
Let's be clear.
We cannot love
If we are in fear.
If there is anxiety,
And if there are apprehensions,
Can we raise a toast and cheer?
You have to come to me
In the previous pristine, pure way,
And give me all that you have,
And take from me all that I have.
Your worried looks,
Your sullen eyes,
Your subdued gestures,
Your silent voice,
Your undropped tear,
I cannot stand,
I cannot bear,
Oh dear !
