I arrived at the pier shortly before dusk
That was where some lovers met
Lori was there with a handsome man
It broke my heart to see her embracing him,
But I couldn’t let the jealousy show
She approached me and said, “Hi, Anthony”
Then she patted me on the shoulder
I’d never seen such a blissful young lady

She introduced me to her fiancé
I faked a smile when he shook my hand
And I said, “You’re a lucky man”
I wanted to tell him that if he hurt her, I’d kill him,
But I knew it would upset Lori
I didn’t want to spoil her happy moment,
So I just said, “Have a good time
And I went away before I fell to pieces

Lori knew that I was attracted to her,
But I wasn’t the one she loved
She never dreamed of me or longed for me
Though I wanted to kiss her so badly,
I knew that her lips would never touch mine
She only felt brotherly love towards me
I went to her wedding despite these things
How I wished I were the bridegroom
