Faute de Mieux

Travel, trouble, music, art,
A kiss, a frock, a rhyme-
I never said they feed my heart,
But still they pass my time.

Поездки, встряски, музыка, картины,
Наряды, поцелуи и стихи -
Я не скажу, что это сердца именины,
Но моё время в них летит.

This is a poetic translation - deviations from the meaning of the original are present (extra words, extra or omitted information, substituted concepts).
