I pointed the dagger at my heart but you pushed it through
I painted a scarlet circle round my heart and you ripped it out
I shed a single tear for you, a cliche but oh so true
Now I'm heartless and happy days are here again
Music be the food of love and I have had my excess of it
Drunk so much, the appetite has sickened and is dead
Love is a poison and it flows through my veins
I wither and I fade away yes happy days are here again
Where once there was life the ashes float away
My heart is breaking and my breath is stolen away
Through the haze I wish you well, Love conquers all
I'm an empty shell... Happy days are here to stay.
