Do look it up sung by Sylvia McNair to see how great music and a great soprano can change lyrics into magic. This accompanied by Silverberg’s Dying Inside “at once both wounds me and tickles my heart”:

“O let me weep, for ever weep,
My eyes no more shall welcome sleep;
I’ll hide me from the sight of day,
And sigh, and sigh my soul away.
He’s gone, he’s gone, his loss deplore;
And I shall never see him more”.
