    How sad Venice can be when you return alone
    To find a memory in every paving stone
    I walk among the birds that fill San Marco's Square
    With echoes of her words around me in the air.

    How sad Venice can be when the mandolins play
    A song she sung for me, one unforgotten day
    Like images of sleep, the gondoliers go by
    But when I try to weep, I find my tears are dry.

    How sad Venice can be when mist is in your eyes
    And you can hardly see, as pidgeons fill the skies
    I find the little street and then the old café
    Where we would always meet to dream away the day.

    How sad Venice can be, beneath the silent moon
    That rises from the sea and silvers the lagoon
    I hear the vespers chime and cross the Bridge of Sighs
    I know that it is time to bid my last goodbyes.

    There's nothing more to say, I pass beneath the light
    And then I turn away from Venice in the night
    How sad Venice can be, it's too lonely to bear
    When you have lost the love that you discovered there.
