Melancholy mood forever haunts me…

For all my friends, in memory of detective Philip Marlowe…

Melancholy mood forever haunts me
Steals upon me in the night
Forever taunts me
Oh, what a lonely soul am I
Stranded high and dry
By a melancholy mood

Gone is every joy and inspiration
Tears are all I have to show
No consolation
All I can see is grief and gloom
Till the crack of doom
Oh, melancholy mood

Deep in the night
I search for a trace
Of a lingering kiss, a warm embrace
But love is a whimsy
And as flimsy as lace
And my arms embrace an empty space

Melancholy mood, why must you blind me
Pity me and break the chains
The chains that bind me
Won’t you release me, set me free
Bring him back to me
Oh, melancholy mood

Deep in the night
I search for a trace
Of a lingering kiss, a warm embrace
But love is a whimsy
As flimsy as lace
And my arms embrace an empty space

Melancholy mood, why must you blind me
Pity me and break the chains
The chains that bind me
Won’t you release me, set me free
Bring him back to me
Oh, melancholy mood

And set me free
Oh, melancholy mood

By a melancholy mood (Frank Sinatra)
