Here Lies Love

Here Lies Love

Sammy Davis, Jr.

Night winds, cold and melancholy,
Wave a blue finale
For my tragedy.
Life a misery,
Meant only for me,
While I linger, weary,
'Neath a willow tree.

Right here our romance was started,
Here again we parted
When I set you free.
All my thoughts are jumbled,
Everything is blurred,
All the world has crumbled,
Shattered by word.

My end has come,
My heart is numb,
'Twas like a bolt from the blue above.
I can't believe it but you're gone, darling,
And here lies love.

The sky is dark
And I hear a lark,
He sounds as sad as a mournful dove.
The dew appears like the tears of dawn, darling,
For here lies love.

All my dreams lost beyond recall,
Dreams of Spring blasted in the Fall,
You gave lips, you gave arms,
I gave all!

I ought to cry,
My eyes are dry,
There's only one thing I'm conscious of;
I only know that I can't go on, darling,
Here lies love.

My end has come,
My heart is numb,
'Twas like a bolt from the blue above.
I can't believe it but you're gone, darling,
And here lies love.

I only know that I can't go on, darling,
For here lies love.
