If only I could seduce him with fine words
And capture his ears with songs of the birds,
With sounds too simple to
If only I could bewitch his eager eye,
Enchant him with no spell and make him sigh
As I alude to my lips and barely give my hand.
If I could simply turn and bid adieu,
After he wants me as I want him too!
For so to entangle his heart was not planned.
If only I could trick the mind then stop the time!
If only I could free myself from such a crime!
To break a heart, my own cannot withstand.
