A Treasure called Sorrow

the treasure of sorrow is mine as well as yours
this gift is as much mine as it is yours

make a song of this sadness and sing it away
this old tune is mine as well as yours

what will you explain to me or what will I explain to you
my heart is as crazy as yours

the talk of town in every street and corner today,
that tale is yours and mine

don't talk to me about the tavern, you preacher
you also visit there and I also visit there
