Well, this is such a sad affair
I've opened up my heart so many times
But now it's closed
Oh my dear
Every salted tear
It wrings
Bitter-sweet applause
But when the show's in full swing
Every once in awhile
High stepping chorus lines
Mean I'm forgetting

Mein lullaby - liebchen
How rich in contrast
Love can be
Sometimes I'm quite amused
To see it twist and turn
To taste both sweet and dry
These vintage years
Lovers you consume, my friend
As others their wine

Nein - das ist nicht
Das ende der welt
Gestrandet an leben und kunst
Und das spiel geht weiter
Wie man weiss
Noch viele schoum....weidershen

And now, as you turn to leave
You try to force a smile
As if to compensate
Then you break down and cry


Thom and Jonny joined Bernard Butler, Clune, Paul Kimble, and Roxy Music's Andy Mckay to form a super band called The Venus in Furs to record some tracks for the Velvet Goldmine soundtrack.
