Heart Laid Bare



The love we share is infected
A passion bittersweet
Dissolving to the music
A romantic act of tragedy
Moan and sigh entwined
Pale and sick and tired
In violet light embedded
Flowers greet the death of the loving
There's a beauty never known before
In this beauty we're deformed and sore
See the pain of a heart laid bare
In the strain of a heart laid bare
Dream of death, presentiment
Under a tragic sky
I close my eyes and dream away
To another year in another time
Illusion veils the face
Sleepwalkeyes of the loving
Features in melancholy
Flowers greet the death of the loving
There's a beauty never known before
In this beauty we're deformed and sore
See the pain of a heart laid bare
In the strain of a heart laid bare
