a sorry end
(music & lyrics: matthias hess)


i begin to read this story
in a book, mysterious as it seems
with butterflies and a first kiss
just like love story should be

eagerly biding the trend
waiting for nothing but a happy end

confidence and trust and nearness
bound and embraced and fearless
almost too perfect to miss
this is clearly provoking a twist

now the tables turn
it's like the pages burn

this story has a sorry end
folding on the last line
it's impossible to amend
this story turned out to pine for a sorry end

i wish to start all over again
from the first word
it was „love“
but i know i can't just stop halfway through

so this story comes to a sorry end
and i want to tear out the last page
but it's useless to pretend
'cause this story can't be changed

it's hard to buy such a sorry end
folding on the last line
and it's impossible to amend
this story turned out to pine for a sorry end

so i lay the book aside
and leave it well enough alone
and try to forget
