Swimming in the sand so dry We lied beyond our dreams Wishing for a star’s reply With a spark we could redeem. Once a beating heart so fertile Now crushed beneath your hands Entangled between love and peril Bleeds lost with no command. I’d proposed to get away from here And you’d supplied the how And all our trust from all our years Could not withdraw us now. You’d what promised you would never Still, begged I stay and fight I begged to learn what she’d tendered, And for love to stay the night. The rest shall be it all fictitious For love has earned me grim Could not imagine a love so vicious Thus chose to be with him. I dare not now undo the wrong To amuse a boundless chase It’s not where you and I belong Thus our betrayals I’ll erase. For now I must call you a friend As you still bring me light But dare not yet be naïve again To render one more fight.
