Toll no bell for me father
But let this cup of suffering pass from me
Send me no shepherd to heal my world
But the angel, the dream foretold
Prayed more than thrice for you to see
The wolf of loneliness in me
Not my own will but yours be done

You wake up, where's the tomb
Will Easter come, enter my room
The Lord weeps with me
But my tears fall for you

Another beauty, loved by a beast
Another tale of infinite dreams
Your eyes, they were my paradise
Your smile made my sun rise

Forgive me, for I don't know what I gain
Alone in this garden of pain
Enchantment has but one truth
I weep to have what I fear to lose

(CHORUS)

I knew you never before
I see you nevermore
But the love, the pain, the hope, oh beautiful one
Have made you mine 'til all my years are done

Without you
The poetry within me is dead
