Lyrics: John Fletcher

Away delights, go seek some other dwelling,
For I must die.
Farewell, false love, thy tongue is ever telling
Lie after lie.

For ever let me rest now from thy smarts;
Alas, for pity go and fire their hearts
That have been hard to thee. Mine was not so.
Away delights, go seek some other dwelling,
For I must die.
Farewell, false love, thy tongue is ever telling
Lie after lie.

Never again deluding love shall know me,
For I will die;
And all those griefs that think to overgrow me
Shall be as I.
For ever will I sleep, while poor maids cry.
Alas, for pity stay, and let us die
With thee! Men cannot mock us in the clay.
Away delights, go seek some other dwelling,
For I must die.
Farewell, false love, thy tongue is ever telling
Lie after lie.
