lyrics

His skin was white
Translucent as light
I trace it all back in his veins

And I watch him sleep
As he dreams next to me
And he twists and he turns in the night

He twists and he turns
In the night when I wake
He twists and he turns
In the night I escape

He gave me his word
I gave him my hand
And I fell blindly
into his bed

I left the ring
And I took the road by the throat
and called it my own

Where was the sun when he shined?
Who is this lover of mine?
Did I know him so well?
I'm under his spell

I lay my will
Right at my feet
I wear my crown
Gold with defeat

You call me your flowerbed
Because I'm where you rest your head
Before you go off to sleep

For you there's no consequence
For me, only repentance
For the sins that I keep

Tell me story I don't already know
Tell me a story I don't already know.
