Sweet bitterness.

Enjoy it while it lasts, my dear, hold tightly, don’t let go

No matter if the rain is sheeting or if the harsh winds blow

Grip tight your hands around his flesh, those knuckles make them white

The sun won’t rise for many hours, endure this painful night

 

Who can say how this unfolds, this one may still turn two

Who knows if it will last much longer, I pity, pity you

Flash not your smile of ‘look at me’; your eyes appear so vacant

Your heart still only beats for you, so stupid, so complacent

 

You think you won the race, my dear, you think you found the end

But you don’t see the pitfalls and the wall around the bend

How happy you appear to be, fly up into your sky

Look down and see that others come and remember people die.
