Abstract

If in your heart a corner lies
That has no place for me,
You do not love me as I deem
That love should ever be;
Is there a single joy or pain,
That I may never know;
Take back your love, it is in vain!
Bid me good bye and go!
You do not love me, no!
Bid me good bye and go!
Good bye, good bye, 'tis better so;
Bid me good bye and go!
You do not love me, no!
Bid me good bye and go!
Good bye, good bye, 'tis better so;
Bid me good bye and go!...

Man's love is like the restless waves,
Ever at rise or fall;
The only love a woman craves,
It must be all in all!
Ask me no more if I regret!
You need not care to know:
A woman's heart does not forget!
Bid me good bye and go!
You do not love me, no!
Bid me good bye and go!
Good bye, good bye, 'tis better so;
Bid me good bye and go!
Good bye, good bye, 'tis better so;
Bid me good bye and go!...
