I have fallen foul of my desire
Striking while the iron’s in the fire
Taking ever more than I require
So forsaking love to be admired

Yet you cast your net when not one star was shining
Caught my eye upon your silver lining
Torn between resisting and resigning
Like a fly toward a flame inclining

Darling I am not opposed to letting go this time
Though I fear I'll leave an eye still dangling on the line
There are far worse things I could expect to leave behind
Then to keep my heart intact and walk about half blind
