lyrics

I cannot love you as I thought  
‘Cause love reflects the thing beloved; 
My words are only words, they move  
Upon the melody of thought  

I tasted and I loved with half my mind, 
I'm doubtful joy can hold our fling 

But Hope has never lost her youth with you  
You only saw through dimmer eyes;  
Our Love we mixed with gracious lies inside 
Because we felt so fix'd in truth:  

I cannot love you as I wanted to 
‘Cause love reflects the thing beloved; 
Your words have captured my heart
My words are only words, they move for you 
Upon the melody of thought 
I cannot love you as I wanted to 
‘Cause love reflects the thing beloved. 

I hold it true, whate'er befall; 
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost 
Than never to have loved at all
