Sophisticated Lady

This song is by Caetano Veloso.

They say into your early life romance came
And in this heart of yours burnt a flame
A flame that flickered one day and died away
Then, with disillusion deep in your eyes
You learned that fools in love soon grow wise
The years have changed you somehow
I see you now
Smoking, drinking
Never thinking of tomorrow
Diamonds shining
Dancing, dining
With some man in a restaurant
Is that all you really want
No, sophisticated lady, I know
You miss the love you had long ago
And when nobody is nigh
You cry
