The jury found the verdict first degree They swore I planned her death to be I prayed they sentence me to die But they wanted me to live and I know why So I do life in prison for the wrongs I've done And I pray every night for death to come My life will be a burden every day If I could die my pain might go away Insane with rage I took my darling's life Because I loved her more than life My dreams for her will last a long long time But I'd rather die than live to lose my mind But I've got life in prison... If I could die my pain might go away
