When Love Is an Affliction
Music: Fugue in B Minor for Organ.
|When love is an affliction,|
There's not much one can do.
Despite the way you've treated me,
I'm still in love with you.
I am the wave and you the rock
Again, again the long retreat
Perhaps it is nostalgia for
Perhaps it is the need to try
What evil makes you hurt me so,
What lonely choice that only you
I dream sometimes my waiting love
