  • Oh, to my dearest ruler and lord
    Merciful husband
    Noblest of kings...
    Your heart of gold has long since tarnished

    In my chamber
    What will the morning bring?
    What it my heart that doth betray me
    'Cause I loved more than one man?

    Is it true your wear a wounded spirit?
    Pray let me mend it and make our love anew...

    Allow me to be your humble servant
    Once again, as before...
    Are you like the others, so quick to judge
    And for this the queen must fall

    What is my heart that doth betray me
    'Cause I loved more than one man?
    Truth within the writings of a letter
    Signed and sealed poor Catherine Howard's fate...

    Truth within the writings of a letter
    Signed and sealed poor Catherine Howard's fate...
