All alone
(I’ve been betrayed)
Wrapped in fear
(Shouldn’t have stayed)
Blinding tears
(How I have paid)
Love is gone
(I have been played)
Shattered heart
(Lost in this raid)
Many things
(I had not weighed)
Distant life
(Will not be made)
Far untouched
(Dead as a shade)
Crumpled down
(Stay where I laid)
Given up
(I’ll make this trade)
Life is lost
(It will be stayed)
Dripping blood
(I bless this blade)
