And a rose that is fading
Roses wither away
Like the sunflower
I yearn to turn my face to the dawn
I am waiting for the day
Midnight Not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory?
She is smiling alone
In the lamplight The withered leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan
Memory All alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days
I was beautiful then
I remember The time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again
Every street lamp Seems to beat
A fatalistic warning
Someone mutters And a street lamp gutters
And soon it will be morning
Daylight I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I mustn't give in
when the dawn comes
tonight will be a memory, too
and a new day will begin
Burnt out ends of smoky days
The stale, cold smell of morning
The street lamp dies
Another night is over
Another day is dawning
Touch me, it's so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
of my days in the sun
If you touch me
You'll understand what happiness is
Look, a new day has begun
