Melancholy Dreamer

The day you left me, how long I cried. The day you left me to cling by his side.
Since then I've been such a yo-yo, turning here and there, going to and fro.
If you would come back, I might find the knack of being true to you. It's your love I lack.

Melancholy dreamer! Full speed ahead on the next train.
What's going on, I can't explain. Love is stuck inside my brain.
Melancholy dreamer! Stamp out your last cigarette.
Feast your eyes on the sunset. The best has not come yet.

When we first met, earth and sky, seemed much clearer to my eyes.
I hoped our path love would guide as we traveled side by side.
Better than flying, higher than heaven is true love on earth, true love on earth.

Melancholy dreamer, etc.

Thread of silk or diamond ring, take whatever love would bring,
Crumpled up or laid away as we begged to make love stay.
If you would come back, I might find the knack of being true to you. It's your love I lack.

Melancholy dreamer, etc.
