Oh, fair and flighty love,
my aerolite above,
the only dove I see.
Could you love me more
if by the son and moon I swore
that I would never flee?

But I still taste you on my lips,
lovely bitter water.
The terrible fire of old regret is honey on my tongue.
And I know I shouldn't love you,
I know I shouldn't love you,
but I do.

I feel it in my soul,
I feel the empty hole,
the cup that can't be filled.
I feel in in my blood,
in the fire, in the flood,
the beast that can't be killed.

'Cause even now you mark my steps,
lovely bitter water.
All the days of our delights are poison in my veins.
And I know shouldn't love you,
I know.

I am not a fool entire,
though I know what is coming:
You'll bury me beneath the trees I climbed when I was a chilli.
I know I shouldn't love you.
I know I shouldn't love you, but I do.
