After the ball is over,
After the break of morn,
After the dancers’ leaving,
After the stars are gone.
Bright lights were flashing in the grand ballroom.
Softly the music playing sweet tunes.
The invitation is faded.
The grand ball a delicious memory.
The gown … the gloves … the bracelet … revisiting a golden evening.
Many a heart is aching,
After the ball is over ….
