(Prince 1:)
Did I abuse her,
or show her disdain?
Why does she run from me?
If I should lose her, how shall I regain
the hear she has won from me?

Agony...
Beyond power of speech.
When the one thing you want
is the only thing out of your reach

(Prince 2:)
High in her tower,
she sits by the hour
maintaining her hair.
Live and becoming
and frequently humming
a light-hearted air.

Ah...Ah...Ah...Ah...

Agony...
far more painful than yours!

When you know she would go with you
if there only were doors.

(Both:)
Agony...
Oh the torture they teach.

(Prince 2:)
What's as intriguing,
(Prince 1:)
or half so fatiguing,
(Both:)
as what's out of reach?!

(Prince1:)
Am I not sensitive, clever, well mannered, considerate, passionate, charming, as kind as I'm handsome, and heir to a throne?

(Prince 2:)
You are everything maidens could wish for.

(Prince 1:)
Then why no?

(Prince2:)
Do I know?

(Prince 1:)
The girl must be mad.

(Prince 2)
You know nothing of madness
'till you're climbing her hair
and you see her up there
as you're nearing her,
all the while hearing her

Ah...Ah...Ah...Ah...

(Both:)
Agony...

(Prince 1:)
Misery

(Both:)
Although it's different for each

(Prince 1:)
always ten steps behind

(Prince 2:)
always ten steps below

(Both:)
and she's just out of reach

(Both:)
Agony...
That can cut like a knife.

I must have her to wife
