Lyrics

Absence of love is a bitter drink
I sip it slow so I can think
enjoying a death in the afternoon
remembering an affair that was gone too soon
I don't want to go on

Don't care for brandy or expensive wine
Champagne & absinthe suit me just fine

L'assenza d'amore è un amaro calice
che sorseggio lentamente
ricordando una storia che finì troppo presto
e pensando, al tramonto, di morire.
I don't want to go on

Don't care for brandy or expensive wine
Champagne & absinthe suit me just fine
