Farewell, sweet seasick suffering
Goodbye, all hollow and brave new worlds
Oh well to green and yellow melancholy
Oh my to sweet and strange new words

God damn, what damage done
What wicked wanting have I felt
My nights have stretched
Constant without flame
I have been quick to draw and shoot
And shoot again but never have I
Made my mark until
My true love came and said,

Farewell, sweet seasick suffering
Goodbye, all hollow and brave new worlds
Oh well to green and yellow melancholy
Oh my to sweet and strange new words

Contemned love letters and sincere songs, my darling
I'm red in the face, aw honey, for your big soft hands
They say that love's too hungry ever to be satisfied
In the meantime, baby, take my hand and say:

Farewell, sweet seasick suffering
Goodbye, all hollow and brave new worlds
Oh well to green and yellow melancholy
Oh my to sweet and strange new words

Say, fair boy, are you so sure?
Have you no questions for the world?
Are your nights so cloudless?
Are your skies so clear?
Say, fair boy, have you no fear?
No fear.

Be still my quake and shudder, my hopeless hapless hero
Why talk of hunger and luckless love?
Be quick now before the light of day has left us lonely
Consider this, consider saying:

Farewell, sweet seasick suffering
Goodbye, all hollow and brave new worlds
Oh well to green and yellow melancholy
Oh my to sweet and strange new words
