Less Attractive

Versions: #1#2
It’s the day when summer arrived
The day when we packed away our failures
As we sometimes throw away damaged furniture
We left our love on a neighbourhood pavement
Then without shouting, we laughed
As if to cover up the sound of our sobs
Sheepishly, we told each other
"Let's stay friends", as if it were beautiful.
 
Yet
It's less attractive than when just starting out, than a bouquet of roses, than a poem read
It's less attractive than a word of love given without expecting anything in return.
It's less attractive than when just starting out, than a bouquet of roses, than a poem read
It's less attractive than a word of love given without expecting anything in return.
 
It’s the day we left our dream before the end
As if we were afraid that it might not end well
It’s the day when, deep down, I was hoping our "farewell" meant "see you tomorrow"
In a stupid agreement, we promised
That we'd still call each other, that we'd say "good night"
And that despite the loneliness of the mornings,
Waking up cold, we wouldn’t regret anything
 
Yet
It's less attractive than when just starting out, than a bouquet of roses, than a poem read
It's less attractive than a word of love given without expecting anything in return.
It's less attractive than when just starting out, than a bouquet of roses, than a poem read
It's less attractive than a word of love given without expecting anything in return.
 
Thanks!

Author's comments:

I've translated "un trottoir" as "a pavement" (UK English), which would be "a sidewalk" in US English.

The author of translation requested proofreading.
