I was happy and never knew it,
Sad and knew it so well.
Love slipped by though I hardly noticed,
yet love has marked me well.
Winter passed and summer came
yet I was living in the cold.
My love has turned and passed me by
and outside the world grows old.
Happiness is trapped for me
In a former time, where once I used to dwell.
I was happy and never knew it
Sad and knew it so well
