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. DiDi ;o)

Quite an irony you convey here, Didi. Your heart is cut out but you feel "heartlessly happy." Indeed, a great metaphor with the "empty shell."
