When the roses turn to black
and the diamonds shine no more,
when the river doesn't flow
and the thunder doesn't roar.
When the birds stop their song,
and the grass doeosn't grow
and the children don't laugh,
is when my love will be no more!
When the lightning doesn't strike
or the falling of the leaves
is when my love for you
will be no more!
