MAIN PART

E5 E5 E5 E5 F5 G5 G5
1. When my love complained, ev'ry word a breath on my last dandelion.
2. When I was a boy, funny things, waterwings kept you confident.

E5 E5 E5 E5 F5 G5
And so lovers will leave, and their tears,
souvenirs for the very first time.
A belly of wine, simi - lar, to keep yourself indifferent.
