“This Night We Part Forever”


"This night we part forever; Thou are nothing more to me. From thee each tie I'll sever That binds my heart to thee." She will not admit to sorrow, says she does not want his love, tells him to court another, says he blighted her hopes, and blesses him


Sort of an "I'll Be All Smiles Tonight" with less smiling and more griping. - RBW
