Oh, my love has lost her diamond touch.
And I, I've lost her emerald eyes.
And she is falling from my clutch.
But the strange thng is, it comes as no surprise...

Tonight, I felt it go for good
(tonight I felt it go for good)
Last night, I thought it was invincible
(last night I thought it was invincible)
But now the bells have cracked,
I don't look back;
We always knew they would.
And now the bells don't ring so much,
For I've lost my magic touch.

And my love has lost her stained-glass face.
And I can't hear her sirens call.
And soon someone will step into my place,
'Cause I can't hear their silvery sound at all...

Tonight, I felt it go for good
(tonight I felt it go for good)
Last night, I thought it was invincible
(last night I thought it was invincible)
But now the bells have cracked,
I don't look back;
We always knew they would.
And now the bells don't ring so much,
For I've lost my magic touch.

All the pennies and the pounds won't buy it back.
When my love comes 'round, she's always dressed in black.
All the pennies and the pounds won't buy it back.
When my love comes 'round, she's always dressed in black.

And my love has lost her sun-down smile.
And I, I've lost my moonlight glow.
And she hasn't come in colours for a while,
But, of course, we all know:
These things just come and go.

Tonight, I felt it go for good
(tonight I felt it go for good)
Last night, I thought it was invincible
(last night I thought it was invincible)
But now the bells have cracked,
I don't look back;
We always knew they would.
And now the bells don't ring so much,
For I've lost my magic touch.
And she's falling from my clutch,
'Cause I've lost my magic touch.

    General CommentOh god, how bad is it that for the first few times I heard this, I thought it was about *ahem* a lost erection? It does kind of fit with the lyrics and I kept mishearing 'falling from my clutch' as 'crotch'..
    Sigh. Maybe it's just a sad indication of my state of mind. I do still like this song, though it was funnier before..
