How do I live? Well - never mind, That's a secret I can keep; I manage a sort of meal to find And a place where I crawl to sleep.
To sleep, and see in a fitful dream The wraith of a face once fair, And a woman's eyes, whose tender gleam Once dazzled old Devil-may-Care. To wake, and wonder what might have been Had the game been fairly played; To wearily fumble the tangled skein That a woman's fingers made. We waltzed together the night we met - 'Twas an Indian summer night And I gazed my fill in her eyes deep set And her soul seemed pure and white. Every one told me she was false, And by Heaven!
I proved it well; And I danced the Devil's eternal waltz That spins on the brink of Hell; Till I reeled from the verge with a heart that broke, And with pockets with nothing in.

And the world took the first for a lively joke, But the last was a deadly sin.
