Come, my beloved, consider the stars
Clouds which veil a golden moon
Glittering gases in the atmosphere
I fear I'll fall in love too soon
Come nestle by my side a moment
And caress me with your soft coo
Though I know you cannot stay
Linger in this pas de deux
A beautiful glass you fill halfway
No matter how brief this rendezvous
Douse me in diamond kisses
I can want for nothing if not you
Can you live and not love?
Can you love and not live?
Dawn grows heavy on my heart
My somber eyes blind with sleep
As night begins to take her leave
Sweet fool, love is all I need.
