The ball has been dropped,
shadows have grown long.
The dreams we made blissfully
in clouds of love and starry eyes
have now ended their possibility.
It will never happen.
For we were to be so very brave
and never shed a tear before
this audience of humankind,
even when our yearning hearts
are pierced through and through
and the world falls at our feet
in piles of dust and desperation.
Can't you see, my love,
that it didn't happen...
and it was never meant to be?
