World of Pain
(G. Liszt)

Twisted tomorrow,
Twisted today,
Yesterday’s all gone,
Kissed it away,
Going to miss it tomorrow,
Missed it today,
I could have held on,
But it twisted away.

Now I’m roughing it every day,
Dawn till dusk,
It’s rough in the daytime,
And in the night it’s rough,
Way back in the good old days,
Hope set the world aflame,
Now I’m living in a world of pain.

I made a bargain with the witches,
For their boiling brew,
Bartered the part of me,
That was loyal and true,
I paid the price,
For living in a state of vice,
I look the same,
Oh, but I’m made of ice,
It’s too late to stop me,
You can watch in vain,
I’m off to the pawnshop,
I’ve got a watch and chain.

Now I’m roughing it every day,
Dawn till dusk,
It’s rough in the daytime,
And in the night it’s rough,
Way back in the good old days,
Hope,
Hope set the world aflame,
Now I’m living in a world of pain,

I’m roughing it every day,
Dawn till dusk,
And in the night it’s rough,
Way back in the good old days,
Hope set the world aflame,
Now I’m living in a world of pain.

Way back in the good old days,
Hope set the world aflame,
But now I’m living in a world of pain,
Now I’m living in a world of pain.
