My darling, I loved you I long to become you And know what it is that you gave
We dance the sorrow Forgive me tomorrow And I pray night after night and day after day Would you watch my body weaken And my mind drift away?
Dear lover forsaken, our love is taken away
You were my speaker, my innocence-keeper I don't night after night, day after day Would you watch my body weaken, My mind drift away?
Dear lover forgiven, my love is driven by rage
Oh I should just leave you, instead I've deceived you But I don't Night after night, day after day Would you watch my body weaken and mind drift away?
I count no one, hold nobody's ear I sold you my hand once and you hit me in fear I don't stand for the devil I don't whisper in ears I stand on the mountains and call people to hear
Sudden bursts of light, it's a fate foretold It is knowing, it is knowing
He longs for the answers, as all of us must He longs for the woman who will conquer his lust He screams in the night, I scream in the day He weeps in the evening and lies naked and prays
Night after night, day after day Night after night, day after day Would you watch my body weaken and my mind drift away?
It's a tempting communion It's a fate foretold It is knowing, it is knowing What it is that you're told
