"Desire Is Sad" as written by William Topley and Luke Julius David Brighty....
I look at you, I look at her with much regret
Another life is strange
The sinners come, with penance wet
And try to force change
But our fortune's set in stone

She's got beauty
And she's famed for being so cruel

And I said I won't be too late
I said I won't be too high
To find out what your sweet thing wants
And I said I won't be too lame
I said I won't be too blind
To ask her what your sweet thing wants
‘Cause you may learn to your regret
As I have found to mine
Desire is sad
You know it can be (At least is can become so)

I learnt that she could say goodbye without regret
And how that drives you crazy baby
I learnt that she was ruder than
A marmoset and almost as lazy baby

She's got beauty
And she's famed for being so cruel

Desire is sad I look at you, I look at her with much regret
Another life is strange
The sinners come, with penance wet
And try to force change
But our fortune's set in stone

She's got beauty
And she's famed for being so cruel

And I said I won't be too late
I said I won't be too high
To find out what your sweet thing wants
And I said I won't be too lame
I said I won't be too blind
To ask her what your sweet thing wants
‘Cause you may learn to your regret
As I have found to mine
Desire is sad
You know it can be (At least is can become so)

I learnt that she could say goodbye without regret
And how that drives you crazy baby
I learnt that she was ruder than
A marmoset and almost as lazy baby

She's got beauty
And she's famed for being so cruel

Desire is sad I look at you, I look at her with much regret
Another life is strange
The sinners come, with penance wet
And try to force change
But our fortune's set in stone

She's got beauty
And she's famed for being so cruel

And I said I won't be too late
I said I won't be too high
To find out what your sweet thing wants
And I said I won't be too lame
I said I won't be too blind
To ask her what your sweet thing wants
‘Cause you may learn to your regret
As I have found to mine
Desire is sad
You know it can be (At least is can become so)

I learnt that she could say goodbye without regret
And how that drives you crazy baby
I learnt that she was ruder than
A marmoset and almost as lazy baby

She's got beauty
And she's famed for being so cruel

Desire is sad
