A wish bone hangs between your breasts
I hope you haven't pulled it yet
'Cause if this little finger doesn't have the strength
Then I'm scared that this bird's back bone breaks

It's only hope that springs eternal
And that's the reason why
This dripping from my broken heart
Is never running dry

I wear a ring of your lipstick
'Round the knuckle of my 4th digit it
Reminds me what our bodies sowed
It will do until we are betrothed

It's only hope that springs eternal
And that's the reason why
This dripping from my broken heart
Is never running dry
Never running dry

The space between your naval
And your waistband was the ice
Where two fingers pirouette but
Now these hang nails, they just slice

It's only hope that springs eternal
And that's the reason why
This dripping from my broken heart
Is never running dry
Never running dry

You tongue the tide, your lips the shore, I am the jetsam overboard,
Goodbye courage.
I christen all the ships that sail on your little kisses' saliva trails
Goodbye courage, hello sadness again.

Little kisses come to pass, then, goodbye courage, hello sadness.

It's only hope that springs eternal
And that's the reason why
This dripping from my broken heart
Is never running dry

It's only hope that springs eternal
And that's the reason why
This dripping from my broken heart
Is never running dry

Now that those 4 fingers are gone
You leave me only with my thumb,
That constantly is pointing down,
The emperor bears teeth not frown

It's only hope that springs eternal
And that's the reason why
This dripping from my broken heart
Is never running dry
Never running dry
