I cannot change the way things are
Alas my heart does sigh
No more than I can take the moon
From its place on high

That which I love brings so much pain
Of which I cannot express
The joy I feel in this pain
I cannot suppress

That which I love and holds my heart
Brings pain and joy the same
As I so love the joy it brings
I can overlook the pain

That which I love will never see this pain
When I look into his eyes
Just a smile to show my joy
And this pain disguise
