You who once were worthy
you who had the night
to such a life, to such a city

One last time

Nor let the heart of bargaining arise
or cowardly regret
But one last time
one last enjoyment
listen to the instruments, the voices,
the ghostly company of men and women
given to the dance/realms of love
and say goodbye, adieu, farewell
say what you must

now separate in their leaving are
now crossed

to the Alexandra you are losing
the Alexandra
you have lost

the phantom company go by
