What revenges of spirit conjured this temptuous rage?
Created you a monster; broken by the rule of love....
And fate has led you through it.
You do what you have to do.
Oh, and fate has led you through it...
You do what you have to do....
But I have the sense to recognize that I don't know how to let you go....

Every moment marked with apparitions of your soul.
I'm ever swiftly moving; trying to escape this desire...
The urning to be near you,
I do what I have to do...
Oh, the urning to be near you...
I do what I have to do...
But I have the sense to recognize that I don’t know how to let you go...
That I don’t know how to let you go...

Glowing ember, burning hot....burning slow.
And deep within, I'm shaken be the violence of existing for only you...
I know I can’t be with you...
I do what I have to do...
Oh, I know I can’t be with you...
I do what I have to do...
But I have the sense to recognize that I don’t know how to let you go...
Don’t know how to let you go,
Don’t know how.....to let you go....
I don’t know how to let you go.......
