<b>Lyrics</b>

Flow, my tears, fall from your springs!<BR>
Exiled for ever, let me mourn;<BR>
Where night's black bird her sad infamy sings,<BR>
There let me live forlorn.<BR>
<BR>
Down vain lights, shine you no more!<BR>
No nights are dark enough for those<BR>
That in despair their last fortunes deplore.<BR>
Light doth but shame disclose.<BR>
<BR>
Never may my woes be relieved,<BR>
Since pity is fled;<BR>
And tears and sighs and groans my weary days<BR>
Of all joys have deprived.<BR>
<BR>
From the highest spire of contentment<BR>
My fortune is thrown;<BR>
And fear and grief and pain for my deserts<BR>
Are my hopes, since hope is gone.<BR>
<BR>
Hark! you shadows that in darkness dwell,<BR>
Learn to contemn light<BR>
Happy, happy they that in hell<BR>
Feel not the world's despite.<BR>
