To think we have second chances
      in love seems
only fair
but alas
      is a deep breath
          that flies away on Spanish wings.*

“alas” (AH-lahs) is the Spanish word for wings

    I was just explaining the meaning of ‘alas’ to my son last night. I must update him on what it means in Spanish.
