No, you don’t know
It makes no sense
And there goes
Your confidence

You were so understanding
So sure of yourself
But when love became damaged
You ran for help

How can you give up on love—oh
How can you give up on love so soon
How can you give up on love this time
You ought to know love is hard to find

Steady
Hold your breath
It isn’t
Over yet
So with one small admission
You’re paying the price
Did you tell yourself lying was
Good advice

How can you give up on love
How can you give up on love so soon
How can you give up on love this time
You ought to know love is hard to find

It’s not easy to tell where
Security lies
Is it stupid to trust in
The look in her eyes

How can you give up on love
How can you give up on love so soon
How can you give up on love this time
You ought to know love is hard to find

    General CommentDazzling along a terrible thread
    There were three little girls
    All of one grace
    And six little feet in a marche militaire

    They were her roses—they were my roses
    That sparkled a moment in the morning sun
    (We made the roses fade that were not our roses)
    My roses—her roses
    P.S. and so we forgot the roses …

    Cabaret
    Three red flames light up by themselves—a torch
    “I waltz only with him.”
    There flared up a struggle which has not even yet
    Come to an end
    It seems, I did not crush it enough
    So to avoid him, she takes a side road
    Here the stones are of a different color
    The hedgerows less well-pruned—more friendly
    Soon the sky clears
    Open to the event
