Scratchin' your name across my heart
Every letter bold and dark
So that every time I breathe
You can know you're bringing me relief

I have stopped those hollow howls of lust
I do it for you, I do it for us
The trinity of honor, love and trust
I do it for you, do it for us

A mirror in the hand
Is worth ten from afar
Come closer now so I can feel you breathe
And see for who you truly are

I have stopped those hollow howls of lust
Do it for you, do it for us
The sunset burns a flaming ash to dust
I do it for you, I do it for us, I do it for you

I have stopped those hollow howls of lust
I do it for you, do it for us
The trinity of honor, love and trust
I do it for you, do it for us, do it for you
