What good is the scheming, the planning and dreaming That comes with each new love affair The dreams that we cherish, so often might perish And leaves you with castles in air When you're alone, who cares for starlit skies When you're alone, the magic moonlight dies At break of dawn, there is no sunrise When your lover has gone What lonely hours, the evening shadows bring What lonely hours, with memories lingering Like faded flowers, life can't mean anything When your lover has gone ************************************** WHEN YOUR LOVER HAS GONE as recorded by Stacey Kent June 2000 England What good is the scheming, The planning and dreaming That comes with each new love affair? The love that you cherish So often may perish And leave you with castles in air. When you're alone, Who cares for starlit skies? When you're alone, The magic moonlight dies. At break of dawn, There is no sunrise When your lover has gone! What lonely hours The evening shadows bring, What lonely hours With memories lingering. Like faded flowers, Life can't mean anything When your lover has gone! For ages and ages The poets and sages Of love, wondrous love, always sing, But ask any lover And you'll soon discover The heartaches that romance can bring. What lonely hours The evening shadows bring, What lonely hours With memories lingering. Like faded flowers, Life can't mean anything When your lover has gone! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - September 2012)
