Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Aria

Always the quarry
that I stalk fades, or evades me.
And I walk an endless hall of chandeliers
in light that blinds, in light that sears,
reflected from a million smiles.
All empty as the country miles
of silly wood and senseless park.
And only in my heart… the dark.

(He sits down)

I wish I were happy.

(Nick comes into the room)
