Lovers Farewell

1. Farewell since all is over
We part never more to see
May the waters of life deeply cover
Each feeling which once was so dear

Chorus.

Vain are the vows we have plighted
Oh, that we never had met
Love’s a flower that blooms to be blighted
And the star of hope arose but to set

2. In crowds I will plunge to forget thee
And I’ll pass mid the festive and gay
But this heart ever lives to regret thee
as the weary dreams of life fade away

3. If ever you should give to another
that heart which you said once was mine
may your love ever be as a sisters
And a brothers love will ever be thine.
