THIS LOVE ENDS HERE

This love ends here and meI'm up and gone
Child in my heart, in my pocket a revolver
This love ends here, have a good day, lover
And me, I'm up and gone, a river flowing on

It's a memory now the city dozing heedless
While in albums children and soldiers yellow
Your face fades away like a wild flower
Bit by bit they deepen, sleep and forgetfulness

Side by side we lay and the grass was moist
How lovely you were, the summer without peer
Ever have they told of this; that is, of love lost
All the dead poets, as they passed from this sphere

This love ends here and meI'm up and gone
Child in my heart, in my pocket a revolver
This love ends here, have a good day, lover
And me, I'm up and gone, a river flowing on
